Hello Friends,

We now have four HUGE fires in our area. The fourth one started yesterday morning at the base of our canyon. It has burned my beloved Manton, the small town many of you have heard me talk of over the years. We have friends there, thankfully they have all made it out safely.

We are most likely going to be ok, there is a lot of rocky, scrubby ground and a large creek between us and the fire. But it sure is scary watching the planes flying over and dumping stuff on it.

These fires are barely contained, and are already in the thousands of acres burning. Thousands of homs being evacuated, hundreds of people...please pray for safety for fire fighters and home owners. pray for rain, pray they get put out soon.

thank you

Dorian, that sounds scary! Take care of yourselves. Praying the fires are controlled soon.

Father of one of my coworkers lives near the big fire in Washington.

Sending prayers for everyone involved! That has to be so scary. I've been to Calif. and seen the aftermath and that was scary enough!

Dorian, adding you to my prayer list. The fires are so devastating. Our friends have been evacuated from their home in Central WA. because the smoke is so thick.
I hope you are safe from the smoke as well.

Thanks Ladies.

 

UPDATE

Fire crews are at my house, waiting for two bulldozers to make fire lines. They are also going to backfire right over the ridge, so close we'll see the pilots in the helicopters .

We are going to be ok, unless the winds get out of hand.

That must be soooo scary for you all - will pray that the fires recede and you will not have to be evacuated.  Thoughts going out to all that have lost their homes.

Tuesday morning update.

Thank you all for the continued prayers and thoughts. Our house is the stopping point of this fire. It's the incident place, so we have tons of fire crew nearby.  Four Cats (bulldozers) are here. The fire line is around our house.

They are hoping to back fire today, if all the conditions are right. And frankly, the sooner it's done the better. I really want to get over all this scary stuff and go back to life.

We are staying here for now, have animals that need us. When they backfire they are going to surround our house with fire trucks and Cats and dump fire retardant on our house!! Then lite a fire and hope the winds will blow it to the wild fire and make it stop. Very scary stuff!

 Yes, all the essentials...including a handful of favorite fabric and my treadle machine head...are in the van. Family lives right up the road and are ready if we need a spot to lay our heads.

Keep the prayers coming for our entire area please.

Thanks for the update, Dorian. You can trust that the fire crews know what they are doing! If only they could control the winds, too. I'm so glad to know you all are ready to go in a moment and that you have a place to stay.

We're about to go to staff meeting, so I will mention you all at prayer time!
