At A Loss For Words

The month of July has been filled with one California fire after another.  There are so many burning at this time that I have lost count.  The following photos (from Cal-Fire and local citizens) were taken of new fires this past weekend in my county and the next one over.

These photos are startling and at the same time - quite magnificent.   Just look at this first photo taken by a homeowner near one of the fires.
It is so shocking to see these photos and realizing that this is taking place at this time and it is only about 25 miles from where I am.  That is about 40 minutes away.  It is the area where I go to do my shopping other than groceries.
There have been new evacuation orders and one house has burned.   And, of course, many many acres have burned.
So many people are being affected by these fires and it seems that there will be more to come.   Fire personnel are coming into the area from all parts of California.  And, yet there are other fires still burning.  The fire near Yosemite National Park is nearby and still burning.   The Fire Departments are doing a fantastic job with the unrelenting fire season.
Evacuation Centers are being set up and animals are being transported to the Fair Grounds.
Positive Energy and Prayers are needed for all involved with this crisis.

Take Care Everyone.
