thanks to the valiant efforts of thousands of firefighters, there are now no active fires in our local city. in the map you can see yellow outlines, those are the burn zones, and any active fires would show up as red dots. there are still fires just ten miles northeast of us, burning out of control, but the immediate threat to sonoma and our home is passed! we are lucky and very grateful, but many have not been so lucky, including our son’s in laws, who lost their home and are staying with our son and his family while they sort out their lives. we still don’t have internet back yet, i had my son post this for me. thank you for all your prayers and thoughts. #sonomastrong ed & debby __________________________________________
all the fires have combined into one large fire now, all the way from santa rosa in annadel park to napa and southern sonoma, and it’s still growing. while we are in the little red circle, and are as yet still not in harms way, a fire this big can shift and do anything, and the air quality here is terrible. thank you for all your prayers and thoughts. we will update here if there’s significant developments. ed & debby ________________________________________

Here we see the dark sun and sky as it looked a little while ago from our house here in sonoma mountain, in the wine country of northern california. there are fires burning everywhere, very near here. we already have family that has evacuated to our house and we are just waiting to find out if the flames will come close enough to force us out here as well. we are praying for the safety of all who are effected by the numerous fires. stay safe! ed
