We need all your prayers right now.
I have not had to evacuate yet, though several of my friends, family, and clients have had to leave their homes and hope for the best.
My car is packed with some art and photos.
All the rest will have to stay.
My mom has room for a few heirlooms and three cat carriers.
We can smell the fire, and we've been told it's approaching.
It has never been this close before, and the winds keep shifting so it's hard to keep up with where it is.
I talked to friends who have evacuated, and was told the freeway on the coast was as black as night earlier in the day.
It's difficult to breathe.
This is like a war zone.
As of this moment, 250,000 people have been evacuated, and it's far from over.
All that matters is to stay safe and keep our pets safe. If we can get through tonight (without having to evacuate), hopefully the winds will lessen by Wednesday.
But tomorrow it's expected to be 100 degrees and windy--the perfect recipe for flames.
I have never experienced anything quite like this.
We're just trying to stay calm, remain grateful, and take each moment as it comes.
Thank you for your thoughts.
