Choctaw fire

Most of you reading this blog have heard about, if not ran away from, wild grassfires yesterday in Choctaw and Midwest City.

My parents' home is OK and so is my brother's and his in-laws'.

How'd I hear about the fires? Oh, a phone call from my mom at 9:45 p.m.

Me: "Hello?"

Mom: "Hey, honey. I just want you to know we're alright."

Me: "Alright from what?"

Mom: "Oh, there are fires all over Choctaw. We've decided to leave the house. Oh, I gotta go. I'm a roadblock and they're checking IDs to let people through." (hang up.)

Wha??? Then I notice Ya-Ya Julie had called an hour earlier to ask if they were OK. Thanks for calling, Julie.

It is very unsettling to be another state away and not know my town is on fire and my parents are evacuating their home. Very difficult to watch the news coverage on the Internet last night, seeing a neighborhood burn where I could name people who live there, and I'm miles away and there is nothing I can do but pray.

So that's what I'm doing. Prayers are with all those in the area affected by this...firefighters, city workers, and of course, the families. Stay safe, everyone.

Choctaw friends, let me know how your families are.
