San Diego Fires

Hi, this is not Deborah, but rather, Domenica (her daughter & fellow blogger). I wanted to update my mom's readers to let you know that my mom evacuated her home at 2am. The back roads to her home (on the mountain) were being closed due to the threat of the fires. My mom packed-up with her nearly 80-pound German Shepard and everything sentimental that she could possibly cram into her car. On a funny note, her dog was sitting next to a pile of ribbon (she did try to take a lot of paper crafting supplies with her). She is at a friend's house for the time being and is not sure if she will have a home to return to when she is allowed back up the mountain. It is very upsetting, but I am just happy that she was able to get out safely.

If my mom is in a swap with you, etc, you can email me at domenica at shaw dot ca or contact me on my blog and I can see if there is any way that I can help out.

Thanks! And, all good thoughts/prayers are greatly appreciated!
