Seattle and I took a drive into the hills to see if some of our favorite spots had been burned in the most recent fire. Thank goodness the pumpkin farm was safe, we love to go there every year and sometimes more than once a year. We then drove further into the foothill to look at Bouquet Falls. That's Seattle standing in front of the stream right below the falls. No damage there either. But there was devastation as we drove to these favorite spots. Fire is weird in that it just picks and chooses what it wants to devour. There would be a group of 4 or 5 houses and just one or two of them had been burned completely down....the others would be untouched. Amazing! Seattle kept asking over and over again to go down to the water but it was so cold and the water would have been much worse. Alas, Grandma had to say no.....drats!
