The Sun is Red

At the moment there are over 100 wildfires burning in every direction. Some are as close as 15 miles, 30 miles and others are 60 miles. The sky is smoke filled. Ash is falling and coating our cars and clogging our pool filters. Most of the fires aren’t even slightly contained. Some of the fires in the more rugged areas like the Trinity Alps will probably burn until the start of fall. We have been blessed at they are mainly burning in vegetation areas instead of populated ones. We have lost very few buildings but if they don’t get a couple of them contained there will be more lost. The sun is red.

It is all really eerie. Makes me really happy that I am God’s Child because I am sure this is mild compared to Hell.

  1. We get the red sky when it is dry and the wind blows too hard. It pulls up the red clay and sends it skyward. It is a bit strange

  2. WOW! Kinda scary. Still, I’ll take a tornado.

  3. Yikes!

  4. Being in San Diego… been through a few of these. Yes eerie…
    but beautiful….
    Call me crazy..

  5. Praying rain for your area to clear the air!

    We were in a drought a few years ago and have been through the fire scares. Not fun.

    Sorry you had to cancel Hope’s party.

  6. I actually lived in Redding a long time ago and being from Southern Cal I know what it is like to be concerned about a fire…

    Our wedding was almost moved because the mountain was on fire (they got fire under control the day before the wedding).

    So prayers and hopes that your fires will get under control!

  7. Wow! That must be relly scary. I just said a prayer for you.
