    Rogueweather.com on facebook is giving up to the minute updates.... I can't seem to link it from my phone, but said they are fighting basically a losing battle, and to be prepared for the worse stories already out of people literally fleeing with the clothes on their back AS the fire lights their house....

    I just saw this on my FB feed. Horrible! I have a special place in my heart for Weed. We always used to stop there on family road trips to California. There was the BEST restaurant across the street from the Motel 6. . .HUGE portions.

    I hope everyone is able to stay safe.

    I have heard the elementary school is gone, a lot of the mill (major employer for the small area), and countless other structures.... which sounds so terrifying! They are also thinking of expanding evacuations, as the wind is brutal, and daylight is fading fast:/ there is no electricity on the whole area, which means no gas can be pumped..... causing a big issue for people trying to leave, as well as the firefighters needing to fill up equipment!

    Just horrible. Tons of prayers for everyone. ..The drought has been so bad for SO long...I am dreading what is going to happen as the "fire season" really gets going.

    God bless each and every victim of the fire and each one of those brave firefighters.

    When you find yourself in the position to help somebody, do not feel burdened. Rather, feel happy and blessed because God is answering that person's prayer through you. In that moment, you are God's Angel - His door to reach through and bring light to someone who is struggling in the darkness.

    Be God's Light. Be God's love. Be an answered prayer. Be God's Door.

    One of my dearest friends is from Weed.
    She just attended a High School reunion there about a month ago.
    Prayers for everyone affected by this disaster.
