Yesterday around noon the blue skies clouded over with smoke drifting in miles from the 16 or so fires that are burning throughout So Cal. Thankfully all is calm here (no winds), except the air quality was getting worse as the afternoon went on yesterday as ashes were spotted falling from the sky. Hopefully today is a better day on the fire front, especially for those in San Diego, where nearly a 1/2 million have been evacuated. Jules spoke with a woman yesterday at the food co-op pick up who read of a lady having to leave her animals (horses) behind…. there are lots of backyard and mini farms and ranches where these fires are consuming. Our Nigerian goat, Fairlight, was purchased from a lady in Romona (there’s a huge fire burning there), and our goat has goat relatives in San Diego county area. I am also sure we have some PTF readers who could be possibly affected; our thoughts and prayers are with you. Hope everyone and all the animals are safe. If you or someone you know has been affected by these fires, leave a comment or email us. Let’s be in touch.
