Fire sucks

I'm sure that by now, everybody knows about the fires raging in Northern Orange County. They're pretty nasty. But here's a vision of how nasty they are:

I took this picture from my backyard on Saturday around 12:30. The fires had only been burning for about three hours at this point, but our normally blue sky had already turned brown and orange. One of the parents on The Dictator's soccer team put it perfectly when they said, "It looks like Armageddon."

Fire sucks. Especially when it destroys people and memories.

Say a prayer.

Danny and I were leaving church on Sunday and he said "Babe, this is how the dinosaurs died!" (and so we left Sunny Hills for the day and headed to the heart of Orange for cleaner air).

After the fires in the mountains last year our friends said their street looked like the moon. There was nothing, all grey and ashy.

It's so sad...
