When Kathy and I came out of the Coffee Bean this morning we could see the brown billowing smoke drifting from the Yorba Linda Fires. By the time I made it home twenty minutes later the sky was completely enveloped in smoke except for a bright blue strip of sky beneath the muddy haze. We have never seen the fires this close to home before and I have to admit that it's a bit unnerving. While my house is about 5-10 miles from the fires I have several friends who are within a mile of the blaze. Several of them have packed up their belongings as well as their pets and are ready in case they have to evacuate.
While we are fortunate to only have to deal with smoke there are so many people who have lost there homes and property. Please keep them in prayer.
