what a crazy night

So the fire what we mentioned yesterday — actually went from burning about 200 acres to over 800 acres.

There was even talk of our neighborhood getting evacuated. We stayed up into the wee hours watching from our living room – the fire, that you could almost reach out & touch it looked like (even though it was probably 1/2 mile away). It was a strange feeling – being so close & also the campfire smell throughout our duplex & ashes floating down from the sky everywhere.

This was how it was looking from last night…

And then finally this morning — this is how huge parts of this great urban park looks like now.

How sad this is. Some people who have come out to visit us — we have taken them to this park to go hiking. It was a great little get away in the middle of this urban jungle.
