Well still here  -  fire being contained and some people being allowed to go home.  Not us though - our town was in the hub of the fire so still danger fire still going, trees falling, but we are hoping we may get back middle to end of next week.


Air is very bad in our area, they are repairing water tanks.  We have  lost 724 homes in just our area - our houses still standing so we are very fortunate as people just down the block from us all their homes gone.  All trying to find rentals.

We watch the reports daily awaiting our area to go green means we can go home.  Firemen/volunteers doing heck of a job.


Found my 4 y.o. grandson today sitting crying as he 'wanted to go home to his room and his Spider-Man outfit'.  It is hard to explain how lucky he is that he still has a room some of his little pals have lost theirs.  We are fortunate.

Aw, @dulwich I'm so sorry you and so many are going through this tragedy. So sad for those who lost their homes.  And your poor little grandson...of course he misses his comfort zone. 

I am so glad you and your family are ok.  Keeping you in thoughts and prayers....hope you can get home very soon. 🌷

Re: CA Fire Evacuation Day 14

So sad for the little ones who don't understand and the slightly older ones such as yourself @dulwich  who also want to go home.  Thank God your home is still standing.  As awful as the situation is, you have much for which to be thankful.  It'll soon be over and you'll be on your way, although I imagine what you'll see will be a shock, not the same old neighborhood.


Stay safe and report back when you can.

I am glad you and your family are safe. Your home is going to be uninhabitable due to all the smoke damage. I don't see how you could live in it for quite awhile. Have you thought about alternatives? I was just curious.

@dulwich   I’m so sorry for what you are going through.  Sure puts me in a reality check.  Don’t we all take some simple  things in life for granted sometimes? So thankful your home is still there.  I’m sure your positive attitude is helping others.  Prayers to you and all in your area.  We are blessed. Thanks for keeping us updated.
