And it's not far at all from us. Only 7 miles away it is doing this to some 100 homes:
Wind has just shifted our way now, with ashes already drifting into our yard. Right as the heat wave starts soaring and gusts rise to 30-35 mph, creating extreme fire-fighting conditions. :(
We have the Air Force, Army, National Guard, and numerous fire companies working hard on it. Only time will tell what happens for us in Woodmoor.
In case we have to evacuate, too, Heather and I are gathering the most important things, ready to toss into the truck and car. Of course, quilts get stacked right from the start - here's the beginning of our gatherings.
Yes, my Dear Jane work is in that drawer. No way is it getting left behind now that I'm so close to being finished after two whole years of work!! Oh - gotta add the cat carriers and medicines box. . . And if there's still room I'll throw in my Sapphire machine. So, I'm off to gather those things.
Pray for us, but especially for all the families who have already lost their homes. :(
