Too close for this old Mom


Our son lives right in the fires and well I am sort of worried!! This picture below he took this afternoon....I have been online with him most of the afternoon and tonight.



This pictures is from just a bit ago....it is has changed...flames are now being seen!! He says he is not worried and not ready to leave yet!! Hm....
This big mountain you can see right out his front room window!! I see flames and if you enlarge this well I would be going NOW!! I tried to say that once they say evacuate it is going to be a mess with people trying to get out..GO NOW!!


I have to trust his judgment!! I told him that we do trust him to do the right thing...help I am just a mother!!

I don't blame him wanting to stay in his home as long as he can -- but good golly I think the time has come! I'm like you - I think he should be going BEFORE the rush! Still prayin... for all those people...

Oh Sandy, seeing the flames on that hill seems way too close, I'd be like you, I'd be begging them to go NOW! I can't even imagine how worried you are, what a terrible time!! My prayers are with everyone out there. xoxo

Our thoughts and prayers are with your son and all those affected.

Praying for him. We had three calls from friends who have children in that area. It's hard hearing (and in your case, seeing it) in such a personal way.

Blessings,

Susan

Sandy,
I've been praying for all our neighbors to the south of us. This fire is such a disaster for all of us who live in this beautiful state.
They're saying the winds are dying down today (Wed) so that should help.
