Oak Glen Fire Blazing Close to Home
Sunday, August 30, 2009

Once again, I regret not having a better camera.  This was the best image I could get, but I can see the flames burning high and bright from my bedroom window in Yucaipa.  The whole ridge is ablaze... pale smoke fills the air, illuminated by orange firelight.  Haven't yet located the best news site, but here are a couple links:

As of 10:00 PM PDT, there was zero percent containment.  The town of Oak Glen, which is about 7 miles from me, has been evacuated.  The fire is between us and Oak Glen.

I ask continually that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know Him better.

I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which He has called you, the riches of His glorious inheritance in the saints, and His incomparably great power for us who believe.

— Ephesians 1:17-19
