Hi Sue; I know you are in the Santa Barbara area and the fires are raging down there. Just wanted you to know I was thinking about you and hoping you are safe.

Carol,

Yes, I am safe; I live closer to the ocean.  However, things are not looking good for the community.  This afternoon the winds shifted and the fire is moving towards downtown.  Half of the downtown area has been evacuated as the fire moves down behind the Mission.  This is our THIRD major fire in the past 10 months!  Lots of homes in the foothills have burned today and firefighters say tonight is going to be a nightmare.  Thanks for thinking of me and please pray for our firefighters.

Oh gosh, it was last year this date that we were down there enjoying a beautiful vacation. We cannot believe what we are seeing. It's such a gorgeous community. I'm glad you are safe, Sue; and I will pray for those firefighters and everyone who is in the fire's path or has lost their home. Take care, keep us posted on how you are doing.
