Local Fires


For the last 3 weeks, the residents of Northern California have been breathing unhealthy air from the many brush fires that are burning in our drought stricken land. The day the "Motion" fire near Shasta Dam flared up, I went out with my camera to catch a few pictures.

Many afternoons the sun has hung in the sky as a large red dot, and the half moon has also appeared red. The temperatures last week were also unbearably hot. 115 F.

The firefighters of our state and nation that have answered the call have been in our thoughts and prayers as they work in these difficult conditions. Also many of our church friends that have had to evacuate their homes that are in the path of flames.



It reminds one when the world will burn up at the end of the thousand years.
