Fire in the Mountains

Even 3000 miles away with rain pouring down outside, I get a chill reading about fires threatening folks along the coast of California. I lived in California for 20 years and saw too many terrible fires. I am very glad we only have hurricanes here in Virginia. So, a tree falls on my house. At least there is a house left to fix.

Da Goddess captures the mood in her recent post, Closing In.

    I don’t know where you lived in California, but as you know, conditions change on a dime here. I hate to admit it, but I’m shaking. I’ve been through this before….yet age and experience have a way of adding emphasis to the seriousness of the situation.

    I never thought I’d be this frightened over a fire.

    I lived mostly in the Beach Cities: Manhattan, Redondo, etc., but the Malibu Beach fire and the Laguna fires scared me more than the nearby fires in the hills around Hollywood.

    Be brave and stay focused. Our thoughts are with you and your family.

    Lying in bed early this morning I had an ear bud in my left ear listing to NPR reports about the California fires, and worrying about the people there — wondering, too, about our fellow bloggers — it creates a more personal connection that wasn’t there before. To Da Goddess, amen to David’s comment. And please, be careful.
