My dear friends,
my town is burning. While I write this, fires rage without any containment. Mandatory and voluntary evacuations are currently under way. Several neighborhoods like the one in the photo above have been completely destroyed within a few hours. The devastation is incredible and I'm not able to grasp it right now. It is heartbreaking and I have no words.
We are sitting on packed bags, ready to evacuate any time. I don't know when I will be able to blog the next time since I don't know what the coming days will look like. Our home might be safe. We might have to leave. No one knows.
I only know that the wind is shifting and picking up, and that is dangerous.
