« Part 6: Tommy again Part 7 of FIRE! series Part 8: Almost home (Tommy again) »

It’s Tommy again. The latest update is looking better. The house and shop are still there and the yard seems untouched. My dad was able to go see the house briefly and he said things are looking fine. The latest news report shows the wind dying down and headed east which is good news for my parents. They’re still stuck at the High School gym, but at least they know that they still have a home.

It’s starting to look up.

I can’t imagine the level of stress your family has been going through. Glad to hear everyone is safe and things look good for now.

Thank God. I read about the bug-out on my RSS reader on my palm last night, and just now got to check. We were sweating bullets for you. Hope the good fortune holds!

Myron & Tommy,
We are praying for you and the family, and all those affected by the fires. God willing, the firefighters will get control and this episode will be just another awful memory.
