Robb and I have been closely following the Lake Tahoe fire, which changed directions yesterday and is burning dangerously near our friend Kel's home and nursery business.
Our hearts go out to all the people who have lost their home, and to everyone -- like Kel (that's ArtTrekker to you letterboxers) -- who has been evacuated, and must be sitting on pins-and-needles, watching the course of this huge wildfire.
It seems that this fire may be a symptom of global climate change (changing rain patterns) and the way we "manage" our land. But that is a discussion for another day.
For now, please send good thoughts out the the families in the Lake Tahoe area, and to the brave firefighters.
If you are feeling charitable, consider a donation to the American Red Cross.
