Oakhurst is full of smoke. It has been a very scary several weeks for many in our area. Friends are still in danger and homes have been lost to the fires.. There are 4 burning at this time in our area. The firemen are amazing, working long hours and threatened with falling timber, flames and smoke.
Many friends have been evacuated. We are hoping that they can go home soon.
Schools have been cancelled today due to smoke.
And the Reception for Sierra Art Trails that was scheduled for Sat. has been cancelled. Watch for the new date.
The exhibit however has been hung and I hear it is beautiful, as always. If you are in the area stop in.
This is all due to smoke.
We were listening on our scanner all week-end, and yesterday as it got closer to Oakhurst the scanner quit. Those things are temperamental.
Coarsegold is still full of smoke, but in the afternoon the wind from the valley clears some of it out for us. It is still hot, over 90.
I am busy trying to get items completed for Sierra Art Trails. I will be in Yos. Lakes Club House this year. I will have some prints of my art quilts. David Hoffman took the photos for me and I am sure you will enjoy them.
Hope all of you are well and happy. We send our love and prayers to Texas.
Don't forget the Ag Show Reception in Madera at the Madera Circle Gallery, on September 14th starting at 5:30. Amazing art and a fun Reception.
Chat soon... thanks for popping in..
