Here's what it looked like today when we evacuated. Very scary. We had no idea the fire was as close as it was until we turned out of our driveway. At this point we had not had any evacuation requests from officials. It seemed like nobody expected it to get like this so quick.

We were blessed to have a premonition that this would threaten us. At the first reports of a fire a few miles away, we started to load our car with the necessary items. Within an hour we were ready to roll without a minute to spare. Thank God with us that we were all safe and sound.

At this writing, we still aren't sure our house is safe. We've seen it on tv but aren't sure it's out of the path.

By the way, you should have seen how great our kids and the cousins performed under this scary pressure. We were a tight knit team when we left the house.

God is good.
