Fire Update 9/05/09….

Well it is looking pretty good with the fires. They are mostly contained and the air is starting to clear up. I would like to thank the brave firemen and volunteers who risked their lives to stop these fires. You did a helluva job ladies and gentlemen. If you are interested in what this is about you can read more here at Fire in the Sky. and to see the time lapsed photography of the fires go here

There is no danger to us now. The air quality is improving and visibility is better. Thank you for all your prayers and good wishes. Time for life to normalize, at least for a while.

Message to the arsonist responsible: They will find you. You killed two of their own and they will not rest until they catch you. You made a mistake somewhere and they will find it and use it to hunt you down. Your time as a free individual is severely limited.

This is the way it was earlier this week. The first two photos are from the LA Times Online


This was in Acton which is 15 minutes away from my home and why we were getting so much smoke.

    That video is horrifying! It gave me goosebumps. I am still praying for you.

  2. Absolutely eerie. Such a scary site and then the world just going about its day with all the cars whizzing by. Positively surreal.

    Sending hugs and prayers.

    Ok, that video made the fires feel ominous. Shiver. I’m glad you’re fine. Just stay inside.

    I thought of you when I saw this on the news. I’m glad you are safe. Stay inside, though. That smoke really is terrible for you.

    I am still praying for you and your family. I heard this morning on the news that it was all caused by arson. Its hard to beilieve that all this tradgedy is because of one person.

    It’s always some stupid arsonist! It pisses me off so badly. I think they need to make them work in slave labor camps and on their free time send each person in the surrounding areas an apology letter.

  8. Ink says:

    Oh, wow. I’m speechless. So glad you’re safe.

    My husband says to the arsonist, “You can run, but you will die tired”. Mike-USMC, oorahh!

    I quite agree, In addition, I hope that you (arsonist) are burned at the stake, so that you die slowly.

    Have a nice day all!


  10. That is horrifying. I am glad you are out of harm’s way.
