Wow... I have no words to describe how I feel. This is such tragedy and its getting worse. Anyone here live down that way?. I hope your ok and safe. My hubby went down there to do a job with his crew yesterday. They said ashes were falling on the vehicles while driving on the Interstate, and I just heard on the radio in my car this afternoon that they closed I-5. Many homes have burned to the ground and people have died. Animals have also died. People are setting their horses free to fend for themselves because they have no other choice. They are also looking for people to foster animals for families that have to evacuate. My prayers are with all those effected by this tragedy.

Jan, it is horrible. I heard the fires were expected to get worse and spread even further. One can only hope for all the poor victims.

Yeah, when I lived in california just about 1 1/2 years ago, I lived about 10 minutes (or 10-15 miles) from where those fires are burning near L.A... Now my sister and brother and practicely all my family for that matter live out there, but thankfully and hopefully out of range by 20 miles or so. They will call me ASAP if they are asked to evacuate... horrible horrible thing to happen...
Keep your hopes high and full of prayers for all of the victims AND their animals :(

I had someone at work today that came up here from that area to get away from the smoke and ashes. I can't even imagine the tragedy of losing my home and pets. I always worry about what would happen if my home caught fire while no one is home and it just makes me so upset to think about. I really feel horrible for all the people that have lost homes, pets, even loved ones.
