Smoke Down

There was not much to report today, thankfully. Krista slept most of the day. I took the kids out to do some grocery shopping.

While we were out, we saw some friends who were surprised that we were still in town with all the smoke. Krista is very sensitive to chemical smells and smoke, and we probably would have evacuated under other circumstances just to get out of the smoke. But we have kept the house closed up and ran our air filter constantly to remove any smoke that made it in the house. The house did get pretty warm, but not unbearable -- especially with a fan blowing on us.

Today was a much cooler day than it had been. There's been a good marine layer that came in that has helped the firefighters get up to 40% containment. Tomorrow is expected to be similar. The news has been saying that Mother Nature has been helping the effort, but I think it would be more correct to say that Father God has answered the prayers of His people.

For even if there are so-called gods, whether in heaven or on earth (as indeed there are many "gods" and many "lords"), yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live.
(1 Corinthians 8:5-6)
