Before & After The Columbus Day Firestorm I took a drive through Wine Country this afternoon and paid a visit to my favorite vistas, At least those that are not still closed off to the public. My emotions are mixed - I'm not sure what to say. speaking of course of the toll these fires have had on the landscape and not the devastation they have caused to lives and property. It's kind of hard to wrap your head around the fact that everywhere you go - places an hour apart from each other- are burned, and in some cases by the same fire. It seems like everything was touched by these infernos yet I thoroughly enjoyed my drive around the county that I love and I feel the landscape will more or less recover over time - then again I haven't seen the hardest hit areas yet. One thing is for sure, this is a beautiful place and it's open for business after all they've been through- the last thing they need is an economic slump. Please visit wine country and show them your support!!! Most of the vineyards were spared even if they are surrounded by burned vegetation. The colors are peaking and I've never seen so much orange mixed in amongst the foliage. it's still beautiful up there but we are going to be seeing the visual and residual effects of these fires for a very long time. 😰😨😱 #sonomastrong #rebuildwinecountry #pressdemocrat #abc7now #ktvu #igersnorthbay #sonomacounty #napafire #tubbsfire #napa #napavalley #napafires #napastrong #napawines #visitcalifornia #visitnapavalley #sonomavalley #sonomavalleywine #winedestinations #bestwineries #winespectator #wineenthusiast

These amazing heroes. I hold such deep respect for them as they were pooled from as far down as San Diego, CA to help tackle the huge wildfires in my Santa Rosa, Sonoma, Napa, and Mendocino Counties the past 9 days straight. Gratitude and love, firemen and women, first responders, and all on board to care for the honeybunz in my hometown. #madrespect#pressdemocrat#firefighters#santarosa#santarosastrong#santarosafire#tubbsfire#northerncalifornia#wildfire#2017#weloveyou#sonomacountylove#godblessyou#thankyou#hugehearts#preciousones
