    California Fires and Friends

    I received a call yesterday that our beloved Jesus A. had to evacuate from one of the fires burning in California.

    I won't mention which one, or location, but he is safe and unharmed.

    That is both sorrowful to hear (the evacuation) and a blessing to hear (he is safe.)

    I know which one, and I hope he ends up ok at the end. The fires are burning through the neighborhood I used to spend my "summer month with dad", after my parents divorced. His house is still standing, but there are houses walking distance away that are gone. Dad hadn't lived there for decades.

    This saddens me.
    I'm hoping for a good outcome but fire is unpredictable and the worst.

    Re: California Fires and Friends

    I got an email from Jesus A... He asked me to post this:

    "Jesus" and his wife are safe. He's staying with family.
    Their home is burnt.
    One house in his neighborhood survived the fire.
    A neighbor of his died
    Another neighbor is in the hospital with burns.
    And as he says -- material things can be replaced.

    Am glad he and wife are safe, but feel so sorry about the loss of things. It isn't so much about the house or a car, but the photos and little things with attached memories. Thoughts are with you, Jesus.

    From the video clips on the news, its a wonder so few have been lost or injured. My prayers go out for the victims.

    Oh my. I am glad that they are okay.
    Maybe I will know
    What's there in my soul
    And my road will flow
    To place I've always had to go...

    Moi is safe.
    Not threateningly near the canyon country where the Tustin, Anaheim Hills, Orange fires occurred.
    About a 30 minute drive inland on Jamboree Rd made famous by this fire.
    Inland through the last part of Newport Beach, across the Back Bay Bridge, beyond 2 major lights and into the wastelands called, Irvine.
    Northern Irvine morphs into Stepford before becoming Tustin. Into the foothills the road steadily climbs and one is entering Canyon Country.

    The first day created quite a smokey sky in that direction.

    Moi's solution - Goats. The City of Laguna Beach found goats very cost effective compared to Mexicans.
    And there is an increasing population that likes goat meat.
    The burning areas have lost their herbivores.

    The scale of destruction seems apocalyptical.
