    California

    Thinking and praying for all those in California effected by the wildfires. It is heartbreaking to watch the news, to watch the whole neighborhoods that are gone, the people missing, and no end in sight.

    a friend who lives in napa is a vineyard owner.
    everything gone all that is left is his fireplace.
    he had less than 5 minutes from notification to get into his car and bolt.
    he grabbed his dog, a hard drive car keys and wallet.
    he went back to the area today and the area is unrecognizable

    It's unbelievable how fast these fires are moving. It really is devastating.

    We were just there in mid-September and everything was very dry. It's easy to understand how everything is going up in flames so quickly. So very sad.

    I've been in Southern California during wildfires. You'll drive to work down a road and on the way home it's closed with fire burning across it. Scary indeed. Sorry to hear about your friend Andrea.

    My friend was told they had to evacuate because the fire this morning was too close. but they were prepared so had everything ready to go in the garage by the car, animals ready. she called me this morning to tell me. Last week I had to do a wellness check on my two friends in Vegas and this week California.

    Just incredibly scary. Those winds are beautiful & so detrimental at the same time.
