This week has been a bit hectic, as we have been trying to wind up little things before we leave for 2 weeks of vacation. At the same time, Southern California is facing some of the worst fires we’ve seen in my memory. On Tuesday, a friend and her family had to evacuate their Modjeska Canyon home, and later heard that it had burned to the ground. Heartbreaking. There are just no other words. Today her husband was able to go out to visit the property to survey the damage, and found the house still standing! It didn’t burn after all. I can’t even imagine the emotional roller coaster they have been on this week.
