the smoke from the fires in the north bay travelled up here yesterday morning. i'm just at a loss for words how sad all this devastation is. i'm so familiar with areas up there. my folks moved to santa rosa a few years after i left home and lived there for ages. i used to take the bus up from san francisco all the time to visit and get away from the city. it is a beautiful area to call home. i just wanted to pass on a bit of information here if you'd like to reach out and help. the red cross is a great way to do that. visit RED CROSS to donate.
