relieved to know you're all ok so far.
continuing prayers for rain, for all the wildfire areas.
it's impossible for me to fathom the extent, even one area is hard to grasp. i see bits+pieces of reports .. and, smoke in the skies. hopefully, no closer than that. in the past, we came close to a few different burns, enough to see how quickly they can change+grow, and, how scary smoke can be when driving.
smoke, fog, dust storms, blizzards, i don't like driving in low visibility! there have been awful chain-reaction collisions due to low or no visibility.
it's continued to be dry here.
this trip has felt more like a visit to southern california's deserts than the lush northwest.
i suppose there will be flooding and mud slides once rain returns. unless it will come gently enough to avoid it. the ground here is usually annoyingly saturated with rain, spongey, with lush green grass. this is different.
when they first moved here, i told my daughter, the ground is so soft+squishy, they need not worry about falling out a window! not true this summer.
i sent a short email to Wade. wonder if he'll get it?!
hope their move went well, and they are out of harm's way with those fires.
