California Fires

Well it's not looking good in Southern California. My parents are on the coast and are out of the danger zone, but I talked to my friend Wendy (who lives in Denver) who talked to her mom who lives in the town next to my parents who said that there was smoke and ash in the air. Of course, I could call my own parents to find out the same information, but that's not nearly as fun.

We got an email from our friends DeeDee and Jason who were evacuated from their home yesterday. Fortunately the fire turned and they're back at home with no damage. They've got some pictures up here.

Unfortunately it looks like the fires in Big Bear/Lake Arrowhead (mountain resorts) may be nearing Kevin's grandparent's cabin. The cabin is one of Scout's favorite places so we hope that it won't be destroyed.

It's a good thing the fires aren't here. It would never burn through the bog that is our backyard.
