Oh Lisa, that made my heart stop for a minute. I hope everyone is safe and the fires do not get anyworse.
Jul 30 2008 17:42 GMT LisaSam67
all are safe and just waiting
we were all supposed to go down there friday night
would have arrived just after it started
i can't imagine being there with that so close and the kids in tow

but as far as we know the house is still standing and all are safe... the important things are in check

It's a terrific shot but way too close for comfort !
So far this summer we have been lucky, there have been some fires but not close to us, though there have been times when we could smell it.
We just hope with the main tourist season about to start this week that we continue to stay lucky.

Please people.....be careful out there, its so dry that it only takes one spark.

Praying for rain for you Lisa, lots of it....

Wow, lisa, Geoff or his parents took an amazing shot. Wildfire is not something I want to get close to, either.
Jul 30 2008 23:44 GMT Mary99
Sorry to see and hear about this, prayers are for you and all the Family
