Somehow I missed watching any news yesterday (dentist stuff) but I'm so scared for everyone in these fires. Just as I dozed off I thought I saw a news piece on some homes burning in a neighborhood but fell asleep with the TV on and missed it all.

Prayers for everyone especially you and your sister and close friends and your neighborhood and the entire area! Praying for rain for the area to help the firefighters.

We are here in San Diego and always have horrible fires around this time. I call them 'the fires of October'. Just sitting and waiting for one to start and then it will be catastrophic. Happens almost every year. Rural areas are the hardest hit, but one year the fires got within a mile of my house due to some kids thinking it would be fun to set fire to the vacant lot near the High School. It was very scary for several hours.

Take care and stay SAFE!

I just learned tonight that my ex-husband's parents' property (where I lived for 3 years many years ago) in Glen Ellen (between Sonoma and Santa Rosa) lost both houses on the property this evening and that it has all burned to the ground. My former brother-in-law and his wife were in residence there. Otherwise, I'm at a loss for words...

Marian, so sorry to hear that. :( I've been watching it on TV and online and it's just unbelievable. Continued prayers and positive thoughts.

And now that I've talked to my ex-husband's family this morning, I found out that two more of his relatives had their homes burned to the ground; my son's cousin's house is gone in Glen Ellen, and my former sister-in-law's husband had his property wiped out too. He also had a winery that burned down. They all lived within about a 5-mile radius of one another. It's all way too much to process.

Two more homes of family members have fires approaching as I type this.

Keeping the people impacted by this in our thoughts.

Marian, I'm so very sorry for your family's loss. We spent time in Sonoma and are familiar with the Glen Ellen area. What a terrible tragedy to happen to the people and that beautiful land.

Prayers for all those impacted by this disaster.
Do they know what started the fires?

No one has been hurt, thankfully. My son's uncle, one of those who lost their homes, is a volunteer firefighter and is out there firefighting right now.

Trail, it is indeed a beautiful area. It's surreal, all of it...because not only was that my family/home for several years, but I grew up in Santa Rosa and am watching that devastation too. One of the hardest-hit areas in Santa Rosa was where I graduated and the school next to mine by the name of Cardinal Newman, half of it burned down. I had classes with students from Cardinal Newman.

What I have read so far, Trippy, is that they think it's either downed power lines, arson, or both. If the latter is what it turns out to be, I can't think of a punishment that's bad enough. Well, actually I can, but it isn't repeatable on GameBoomers.

I am still waiting to hear news of my daughter's best friend in childhood, as to whether or not her parents' house off the Silverado area in Napa is still there. The fire apparently went right through their street, Mount George Avenue in Napa, and some houses were burned and others were not. Her father treated me in the emergency room when I lived in Napa.

It's like watching a very large chunk of my life go up in flames. Very difficult to see and to comprehend.

So horrible and frightening, Marian. i am so sorry. I can't imagine losing not only my home, but thinking that more of my family also lost theirs.

That is awful Marian. I cannot imagine what this must be like for the residents there. More prayers being sent! I sincerely hope this is not the work of an arsonist!!
