Every time I step outside and smell the smoke, it is a visceral reminder of the devastating fires. More than 25,000 people have fled their homes from seven counties north of San Francisco. Please pray that the fires are contained soon. My heart aches for the fire workers fighting this day and night and for all of those who have lost so much. Our hearts are heavy. Everyone knows someone either directly or indirectly who has been affected. #airquality #airqualitybayarea #napafire #santarosafire
