Wildfires in the West!

6 posts in this topic

I've been hearing about wildfires in California, Colorado and a few other Western states:

My heart goes out to the people impacted by this. Hoping that none of our members in that region or their loved ones are among them.

That's the province we moved from.

And the wildfires were a factor in the decision. When the sky is yellow, and it feels like you're breathing through a dirty sweat sock, it's horrific.

We were lucky enough that the fires were never close enough to cause an evac, but that was bad enough.

I hate wildfires! My heart goes out to the people whose homes and businesses are in danger, but I also hate it for the wildlife, too.

We went to Gatlinburg in the spring, and it was sad to see the devastation. The people were still kind of shaken, too. Our waitress told us she'd never smell a fire the same way again, I think a lot of people knew at least one person who was affected or died. Reminded me of New Orleans where they're still talking about Katrina.

At least our part of the country is sparsely populated and there aren't many homes involved when hundreds of thousands of acres are burned.

Praying for control of the burn quickly,
