Starting mid day on Tuesday this week, a fire started on the mountain in the northeast corner of Alpine. It has caused evacuation of 500 homes in my town. Because I've had calls and emails from friends wondering if we are okay I thought I would make a post.
here. My house is on the other side of town and we were not threatened by any fire problem. I feel for those that have had to leave in such quick notice. I'm so glad that the homes have been safe. I hope friends and family can get back to their homes today or very soon.
Thanks so much for prayers and concern.
Edit: We had rain today! And all Alpiners are allowed back at home. Unfortunately I have no internet at my house due to the fire. Happy Weekend, all.
