Evacuation

Karen Jo: There is a large fire threatening Los Alamos and we have had to evacuate.  Herman, Emma and I are at my nephew's.  We are all safe.  I will keep you updated as things change.

Update:  I would like to let you know that the fire is approaching town on the opposite side to where we live.  Our house will probably be fine.  The fire still has to burn down a mountainside, cross a canyon floor and climb the opposite canyon wall to get into town.  There are lots of fire crews fighting very hard to keep that from happening.  Herman and Emma aren't very happy with all the changes in their lives, but we are all safe and that is what matters most.

Camie's Kitties said...

We are so relieved to hear you are safe. We were quite concerned about you. Mom heard that there was a fire where you live, and we were very worried. We just need to hear from our aunt and uncle now.

We are sorry that everything is so disrupted, but Mom Karen Jo, you are correct - it is better to be a bit disgruntled and safe.
