The Fires in Southern California
The fires that are burning throughout numerous counties here in Southern California are HORRIBLE! The fires have taken communities by complete surprise and have devastated areas! We are in southern california but not in the immediate fire area-yet we are feeling the impact!Mom had ash all over her car last night and as you see in the picture the large smoke-filled sky. And were at least 30 miles from the fires-it must be awful closer!! The smokey smell in the air, the smoke, the super low humidity, the winds-it's been awful! We hope and pray that every hooman and animal has been able to get out of the way of the fires-unfortunately that hasn't been the case...mom read in todays paper about two kitties that didn't make it because they hid under a bed when their hoomans had to race out of the house FAST! Their hoomans grabbed the carrier but the kitties were too spooked to get in and raced and hid, We are so sorry to anyone who has lost a house or a furry loved one during these horrible fires! We sure do hope it stops soon!!!
