It is burning

This is just so sad watching my hometown burning to the ground. The canceled my work today and I can see the fire getting closer to my work. The smoke is killing me we have the house closed up and have a air purifier we just got going. It just doesn't help with the heat at 97 degrees. Really is breaking my heart watching people's homes burn Sad

I am sure the air quality is not good. Any thoughts of taking DS and getting out of there until it is better? Hope they can get it contained soon, but it is so hot. Please stay safe.

Sorry that some of you are having to deal with this. We have been getting a lot of rain in Orlando lately. Hopefully, it will make its way out west.

we are in the center of the US a little west.

Today I was finally able to go back to work and they are letting some people back into their homes, but it is still only 15% contained.

From what I've read over the last couple of days, things seem to be improving in the areas most effected. I hope that's the case with your area and am glad you were able to get back to work. Hopefully it provided at least some distraction from everything going on around you.

So sorry you are going through this! It is so sad to watch when you are not at all attached to the area let alone to be a part of it. We had a fire here that burnt around 60 homes (?)...then I heard about the CO fires and I felt even worse! Glad you were able to get away and that you are back to work.
