There are neighbors all around me that lost their homes, including Dennis and Claire, my next door neighbors. I don’t really feel guilty, just sorrow for all those that lost their homes, and it will feel very lonely going back. I miss Claire already!
What I really felt badly about was that I had neighbors across the street that didn’t know about the evacuation until they awoke to burning bushes outside their bedroom window!
I am so grateful that my house is standing. I am even more grateful to know that the community I love and talk about so much is everything I thought it to be was so helpful to all—simply wonderful.
