Kari and I have spent a good part of the day keeping an eye on the news associated with the Telegraph Fire near Yosemite. As you know, we've made trips to Yosemite every six months for the past 2.5 years now and when the most precious place on earth to us is having issues, we keep an eye on it.
Our hearts go out tonight to those who are in fear or already have lost a home in the area of this fire. And we're concerned too, for the hard-working men and women who are seeking to stop this fire. Yes, fire is a part of life, but to know that so much of beautiful countryside is being burnt for no good reason hurts to know about.
We love Yosemite and talk often about heading west once the kids are all out of the house. Some of the kids might even beat us out there, they're so enamored, too.
Hang in there if you live in the area of the fire. We're praying for you.
