I live about a 3 1/2 to 4 hour drive to Napa and the Santa Rosa area. It's VERY windy here this morning. I'm hoping it's NOT windy there. The winds are coming from the north. Stay safe everyone!

The news coming out of Potter Valley is terrible. 9 dead. One a young boy who couldn't outrun the fire. That's aprox. 40 crow miles from us, as far as I can tell. We're ready to go if the word comes to evacuate. Not windy here now.Skies are clear.
Condolences to Wild
Iris Rows.
Hope the people are o.k.

Just a note that the loss was 'My Wild Iris Rows' in Santa Rosa, California.
'Wild Iris Rows' is a different entity located in Tennessee.

My prayers are with you and all the victims of the natural disasters occurring across our nation.


I am so sorry to learn of the horrible news! Crying Group hug

Thought and prayers are going out to all those who are affected. (Including the hurricanes, floods and many wars all over.) There is so much suffering these days. Crying
