Update

.
Thanks for all your love and support! What an incredible night. From the news this morning it appears that one of the houses on my little culdesac burned down but I took this picture from a better spot this morning and it shows my house is still standing but probably pretty smoked out.

We're gonna try and get up there today but most of the roads are blocked so I'm not sure if we can get there.

Update:
13 Injured but no deaths reported
Over 100 homes were destroyed
Several buildings at Westmont burned down including a ton of the faculty housing.
Spread to 2500 Acres

DJ!!!! I'm so sorry all of this is happening to you. I hope there isn't too much smoke damage to your home. Praying for you and all of the others!

Wow. Well, I'm glad it's moved on from your area now. After spending the last 10 years in SoCal and experiencing the last 2 major FireStorms... I can sympathize.

Now the recovery begins. The "survivors guilt." The truckloads of church groups & Boy Scouts bringing water, sandwiches, shovels and sifters. The news crews and onlookers. And devastated families. Wish I was there to lend a hand. Instead, praying for your neighborhood from Texas.
