Our thoughts and prayers go out this morning to our sisters and brothers affected by California wildfires.
The photo above was taken in early September of this year in Oregon House, California (Yorba County), about an hour’s drive south of the town of Paradise, which has been all but leveled by the natural disaster.
It gives you a sense of how much fuel — dry brush — the fires have to feed on.
Check out this terrifying photo posted by my friend Melanie K on Instagram from Santa Monica. Apocalyptic is the first word that comes to mind.
The fires were never this bad or this frequent when I was a kid growing up in California. This year’s fires are already on track to be the state’s deadliest and most devastating ever.
Our hearts are heavy this morning as we pray for the victims and their families. G-d bless them all.
