here is what's been happening in my life.  July 17.  Our home survived, over half in our community lost everything.  36 homes burned.  We went without electricity for just over 3 weeks.  Hoping we get water back today.  

Sorry I have not been checking in.  The Oregon coast retreat is still happening.  I will be posting about that soon.

Patti, It's good to hear from you!  I'm so happy for  you that your home was spared. It looks like the fires came so close, too. Are you back in your house?

we have been here off and on.  When the temps went over 100 over a couple weeks ago, we finally had to leave.  Too smoky to open windows and no air conditioning.  When we got power back last Friday we moved back.  Been hauling water, but hope to get that today.  Our underground cistern that burned up, is being replaced.   Our well only produces about 1 1/2 gallons a minute so we need a cistern.

Patti, so sorry you had to go through this but happy your home was spared.  Sorry for all your neighbors who weren't as lucky, my prayers go out to all of you in this sad situation.  Pray that your lives will go back to normal soon.  (((((HUGS)))))
