We made it

Well we made it! The fire fighters got the fire out just a few hours after someone started it! The cool part is, Sam was called out to fight that fire.

I am hoping that all of this will soon get under control. The Santa Annas should be slowing down and we are suppose to have cooler weather this weekend.

A lot of base is on fire. At the end of this entry I will give everyone a few links. Marine moms.... all of the marines are safe.

The marines are very frustrated. They so want to go and do something to help, but for right now they are just sitting and waiting. I feel their frustration. I so want to go do something, but I have been told to stay put, and not go near the base.

Today I am going to go work for a few hours. I must admit that the extra money is nice, but I just wish it was all going to come in at once and that I could pay for Nikki's trip. Oh well

Yes, we do have an orange haze, and smoke everywhere! We have all of our doors and windows closed but it still smells like smoke and and we still are getting some ash in the house. I keep cleaning but I must wonder why. I guess it makes me feel like I am doing something!

Thank you to everyone who keeps checking in on us.

I can imagine the ash and smoke are a nuisance but I guess its better then the alternative. So glad you and your's are okay. Paula

I am so glad you are going to be alright.  Truly relieved.  Now I hope that tension can go down some for all of you as I know this was difficult to be put on hold like that for so long.

I hope the worst is over for you.  sounds like you barely escaped.  We have a lot of brush fires here caused from people throwing their cigarettes out of the cars and they someetimes burn homes down.  From small causes big fires can come.  People can be so careless.  Everything gets put on hold.
