Los Angeles Fires

Monday, November 17, 2008

This weekend, as I'm sure you have heard, Los Angeles and Orange County were filled with many fires. I was glued to the TV as were many Angelenos.

My librarian friend's parents spent Saturday putting out fires on their property, even hopping the fence to dose a fire in the neighbor's palm tree.

A friend's daughter's classmate was evacuated from another fire and their front lawn burned. Luckily, their house was saved. She told us a funny story:

Last night I was looking outside and their were huge flames and explosions! It was so scary!

My mom said the transformers were blowing up.

I said, "Robots?"

Los Angeles Fire Ashes on Car
My car on Sunday morning. I live a good 35 miles from the fires and the air was like snow - ash was falling everywhere.

My heart goes out to all those who affected by the fires.

If you are so inclined, please make a donation to the American Red Cross, who always do such a great job helping people in need of a meal, comfort, shelter and hope.

Mary, I was totally thinking about you. I am about 8-10 miles from the fires in OC. The skies were smokey and it was hard to breathe. Thankfully it hasn't spread any closer to me. But sadly I know some family and friends that were evacuated and lost their homes. My heart goes out to them. Makes you remember to appreciate the little things in life. Glad to hear you are safe.

I can't believe how many fires there have been this year in SoCal. I remember watching fires in SoCal when we first moved to Kentucky. It is really sad to hear of those that have lost so much, especially in these difficult economic times. I'm glad to hear your ok!
