    Also, Airbnb has many free houses and rooms for evacuees, donated by the home owners.

    I'm just trying to gather my wits now, and will drive to my daughters house in LA tomorrow or Saturday, as soon as I am up for it.
    I am trying to hold it together, but, dang, y'all, it is devastating to see your town gone overnight.
    I just hope my little Sonoma County dream home is still here when I get back.
    My heart is broken for your friend, and I do hope your home is spared.

    Your link to airbnb is very appreciated. We will pass it on.

    This is killing me.
    All the animals.
    The woodpeckers, hummingbirds and great blue herons that come to my yard.
    All the pets people couldn't find when they had to evacuate, quickly, in the middle of the night.
    Ubey.

    Dear Gitana and Everybodhi,

    You both are in my thoughts and prayers.

    Just reading your posts made me hold my breath and I didn't even realize I was holding my breath. Your descriptions tug at my heart.

    I wish I could give you both a hug, like Lilibet said, make you a good cup of tea and just sit with you.

    We are here for you. May tomorrow be a brighter day.

    (Slightly o/t,

    Push to get cell phone users to sign up on Alert San Diego System
    http://www.cbs8.com/story/36587921/p...n-diego-system

    "(NEWS 8) - The wildfires in Northern California are severely hampering communications and with more people ditching their landlines for cell phones, it’s especially important to make sure you are able to receive notifications in an emergency.

    Authorities have issued new and winder evacuation orders as the wildfires in wine country continue to spread – a somber reminder to San Diegans during this season of wildfires to be prepared." )

    This ABC News updated story describes all the fires currently burning in CA. Some I didn’t know about. The story details acreage burned and damage. Here is a list, quoting the article...

    The so-called Atlas, Nuns, Patrick and Pressley fires are considered branches of one giant blaze in Napa, Solano and Sonoma counties — collectively known as the Southern LNU Complex.

    The Tubbs and Pocket fires make up another enormous blaze, known as the the Central LNU Complex, in Napa and Sonoma counties.

    The Redwood/Potter fires and the Sulphur fire make up a giant blaze, known as the Mendocino Lake Complex, in Lake and Mendocino counties.

    The Cascade, La Porte, Lobo and McCourtney fires make up one huge blaze in Butte, Nevada and Yuba counties, collectively known as the Wind Complex.

    The Canyon 2 fire has burned 9,217 acres in Southern California's Orange County since the flames started Monday morning.

    The Cherokee fire has singed 8,360 acres in Butte County since Sunday night and was 60 percent contained Thursday morning.

    The 37 fire has scorched 1,660 acres in Sonoma County since it started Monday afternoon. It was 70 percent contained by Wednesday morning

    If it provides a teeny bit of comfort, many of those pets are being rescued by groups in the Bay Area. As I mentioned upthread, fosters are helping care for them.

    These two were taken in by Hopalong in Oakland. Please have your friends check all the shelters and rescue organizations. I can get together a list if there isn't one already.

    The photos of kitties with bandaged legs makes me so sad. http://www.hopalong.org/help-please-sonoma-fire/

    What horror they must have gone through! So true of all the animals in these infernos.

    I don’t think we have a list of animal rescue facilities on the thread if you want to put one together BOP. That’s a wonderful idea!

    Fire has no mercy I lost my home due to fire,burned to the ground.The only thing standing was the brick steps and chimney.Thank God we were not home,I had left to take my son to a speech therapy class and left my clothes dryer running.They say the clothes dryer caught the house on fire.You learn then that material items are not important,it's lives.
    My house burned down in 17 minutes according to the fire report.The worse part was arriving on scene,never will forget the firefighters still putting out what was left.They are brave beyond belief.

    My heart goes out to all these communities and I pray for rain that's what they need right now.Much rain.

    KQED Forum has really good coverage every morning about the fires, if you like radio, you can listen here, or live every morning for two hours, on KQED online, at 9AM PT.
    Forum with Michael Krasny
    This is the best media source of information about the fire that I have found, I listen every morning.
    They said, as of this morning, 168,000 acres have burned.
