346 homes, 35 streets...

damaged or gone altogether. In the span of just a few hours on one night--and that is just a preliminary number...there could be lots more because they are having to go through the neighborhoods on foot.

There's a community meeting tonight to let people know on those streets whether they still have a home or not.

I can't imagine being one of those people...having to go into a room...with your neighbors and a member of the mayor's staff and counselors and find out whether or not you still have a home. How would you hold it together if you found out that your home had been destroyed? I don't know if I could.

    Happens all the time in wildfire season in the American Southwest. This is just an urban enough area that it actually is getting press. One state south, we have over 500,000 acres burning right now.

    Tough stuff! I don't know how I'd handle that. With God alone I'm sure.
