Texas Fires

We live in Austin, Texas, less than 30 miles from the monstrous fire blazing through Bastrop and Smithville. Helplessness in the face of overwhelming tragedy is a terrible feeling.

The green circle, that’s us!

Its hard to believe just East of us Louisiana has had rain! Why couldn’t we have received some of that rain?

The grey smudge along the bottom is the smoke trail. Its not nearly as bad as it was this morning, still my son is wheezing and needing breathing treatments.

Poor, sleepy puppy! He frequently falls asleep during the treatments, aw.

I am thinking of you all at the shelters tonight. I am holding you in my heart and envisioning you each encased in a protective light. Godspeed.
