Fires still burning

Many of us here are glued to the TV, radio, and internet searching for news and wondering if our homes are safe. Since I haven't left the house in 48 hours I thought the best I could do is to show you some of the images we are seeing on TV. The air quality is so bad from smoke in some parts of the county that street lights come on automatically because it is dark in the daytime and cars need their headlights to get through smoky areas.
Thanks to everyone who has been keeping us in your thoughts and prayers. Hopefully the fires will be contained soon.

Wish you all the very best in these difficult times. Our thoughts are with you and especially with those whose job it is to fight the flames. Goodnight from Stockholm.

It's difficult to know what to say! The extent and scope of the tragedy is hard to comprehend. Continue to stay safe!

Wow that is quite amazing that the lights came on in the day! That gives a good idea about the severity, although even the local TV continues to show snippets. Wish you and yours well.

Sounds a lot like Hurricane Katrina, just when you think the worst is over, then the worst comes. Bring back a lot of dark, hurting feelings around here.

Oops, I forgot. What's my favorite shrimp? Boiled. Lots of crab boils. With a cocktail sauce so full of horseradish it clears your sinuses before you eat it. Or, just fried.

Hope it has already become under control. It remembers me the Greek fires this summer. Climate changes! All the best!
