We're in the northeast valley of Santa Rosa, just over the hill from Calistoga

And fires still burn in two other directions.

My in laws and and least a couple dozen of our friends have lost their homes.

It is devastating and I'm especially worried for renters who may not have insurance.

If you'd like to help, the Redwood Credit Union has set up a donation fund, I'm sorry I don't have a link.

We are exhausted and heartbroken and none of us is out of the woods yet.

Keep us in your thoughts please.

2. Sending you love and support

I've been through this. It is survivable. Terrible, but you will get through it.

5. How very frightening! I cannot imagine what you are going through.

I will donate to CA fund...but it will be so insignificant as to what is so horrifying.

Flooding on one coast and devastating fires on the other.

Wasn't able to donate much, but thanks for letting me help at all!

9. I understand completely.

Many of my friends, students and coworkers lost their homes in the San Diego fires of 2003 and 2007. In the 2003 fire 1,500 homes were destroyed. Please take care of yourself for your family's and friends' sakes. They will need you to be there for them in many ways.

10. K&R,

I have been trying to follow listening to control 2. I'm in West Co. and our fire dept had a water tender deployed, not sure if it still is. I know they were looking for manpower to relieve the first team. Best wishes.

13. This morning when I went out to bring in the

garbage cans, the air was thick with smoke, and the smell was heavy, and the morning sunrise looked strange, a kind of orange glow.. and to think that asshole in the white house has refused to give PR any more help, than California isn't even on the radar.

Fuck you DONALD TRUMP, . waste of skin.

16. Thank you everyone

I felt like letting you all know about the fund was a small thing I could do, we all feel so helpless.

I've been spending my energy holding my own family together. My in laws are here with us and they are devastated. They're both very hearty but they are 78 and 80 years old so it's been very hard on them. We've evacuated from here once and remain on alert now.

What has been amazing is the outpouring of support, both from the community and our extended family and friends. Our neighbors have pulled together and looked out for each other. We'll all be closer after this.

I'm very grateful for many things, we're alive, we're together, we have power and hot water

And hey, I don't think I've ever hit the greatest page before.

Thank you
Joanna
