I've been a bit of a nervous wreck this week. I got the news Sunday about the big fire in the Yosemite Valley. My Dad lives there and was evacuated Saturday night. Currently his house is still standing but he is surrounded by fire on three sides. We've been praying he is spared.
Then I heard yesterday about the earthquake near L.A. Lovely. Mom and other family live about 20 minutes from the epicenter. Everyone is fine. The only damage was a broken plate. In fact, Mom was driving and didn't even feel it.
So far everyone is safe and sound but not yet out of danger. Sometimes living in Calif. has its drawbacks.
