There is no place like home!

Just a quick note to let you know we are home tonight safe and sound. Our house was spared but there were many who were not so lucky... my thoughts go out to the other people who are still evacuated to shelters and those who have lost their homes and possessions.

Around 12PM this afternoon, my family and I were standing on a cemetery hill top when the the heavens opened up and the rain poured down, drenching the earth and dousing the remaining fires that still were burning strong. What a surreal experience!

I would like to thank you all for all your wonderful, thoughtful, kind and loving words and prayers. I am so very grateful to be part of such a carrying community -- thank you, thank you all!

Now I am off to bed. I will catch up on all I have missed on your blogs this week just as soon as I get some Zzzzzz's.

I have never been in a situation like that and can only imagination what you have been through and are going through now(thinking about your neighbors who were not so lucky).
