We know two couples that live up there and were in churches that pastored around us in Frankford. We quickly sent messages to them to make sure they were okay and offer our home if they could get here. They had been evacuated. The one couple was able to head south and found their way to family.

This morning as he packed to go we noticed that the sky looked a little funny especially after so many nice, warm sunny days. When we stepped out we smelled the familiar smell from last year. The winds have shifted and the south wind is blowing the smoke all the way to us. We are over 6 hours south of the fires and yet this morning we can smell smoke. I can only imagine what they will discover and see as they drive north.
