FYI on CA Wildfires

I'm sure you've all heard about the wildfires raging through Southern CA. Here's a link to the official state site:

I am happy to know that they are currently quite some distance from my own family (and family of friends) who live in the Thousand Oaks area (Northwest of LA). They appear to be inching closer to my cousin, who lives in Newport Beach, though. I'm not too worried at the moment, but I still don't like it, and hope they at least flee up to Thousand Oaks with the rest of the family.

So, even if you aren't affected by these events, or don't know anyone who is, please say a little prayer (or send positive vibes in your own way) for all those who are having to deal with this disaster.

My cousin and her boyfriend got evacuated, still don't know much about my cousin Jim yet. But knowing him, he's fine! Thoughts and prayers to everyone down there!

My thoughts and prayers go out to all of those who are being relocated from the dangerous areas, or may have family & loved ones in danger.

I always worry about those who are living this each year, when we in NY watch on the news.

After reading updates on Laurie, Hilly, and Jill's blogs, all I can think is that I hope the humidity level goes up really soon down there. Last night I think they were saying the humidity level was something like 1%. And the fire in southern San Diego county has crossed the border. So now there are two countries affected. *sigh*

Thanks for the link, Tami. I was blogging extensively on the fires the past couple of days; however, I have decided to take down the posts. The fires are causing enough stress and tension at home without the added anxiety of reading about it on my own blog.
