Home!

We are home!  We're still on pre-evacuation, just in case, but I imagine it will be like that for awhile.  We aren't fully unpacking our valuables just yet.  We have escaped both damage and the burglaries committed in our neighborhood, and are incredibly lucky and blessed.  Thank you for hanging around and bearing with me!  I will get back to normal posting come Monday.  In the meantime, my family's hearts go out to the 346 families who lost their homes, the family of those lost in the fire, and those with homes who cannot yet return to them, or who returned to severe damage.  And we are thankful to all the kind people who helped us and gave us comfort and support.  As well as to the firefighters, police officers and rescue personnel who are working so hard.

  8. Happy you came home to a house intact. Friends of mine live on the far side of Colorado Springs and they were housing several families displace by the fires.
