I need Quilts!!!

I just got asked if some evacuees could come to my house to stay tonight!  Of course they can!!!  FINALLY!!!  I can help in some small way!!!  I just wish I had spare quilts to give them to sleep with tonight and then keep to comfort them through all of this and after!  I wish I had a lot of spare cots!  I wonder how many people will come to my house to sleep?  What should I cook them for dinner?  I only have one spare bedroom and LOTS of floor space!  How can I make people comfortable on the floor to sleep?  I wish I was more prepared for this!  :/

Fire by my house

Yesterday afternoon and today we've been watching a wildfire that's just a few miles away from my house!  There have been over 1,000 people evacuated so far so we're just watching and praying!  I feel so helpless right now!

My brother-in-law is a sheep herder and he's lost 600-700 sheep!!!  :(

I didn't take these pictures.  They are ones a friend of mine has sent to the news agencies around here. 

If you're curious, you can follow the fire on  or

It hasn't rained here for more than two months so we're praying for some now!  The wind is so strong right now that a few minutes ago it blew over our garbage cans!  CRAZY!!!

I guess I'll go back outside now.  I can't sit still!  I just don't know what to do!!!  :/
