Eagle Creek Fire Rain

The evening the rains came after the Eagle Creek fire, I felt so blessed.
Skies which were grey with smoke and ash falling, suddenly had the blue of night.
Actual color, yellow from the setting sun and the green of the West Hills, was discernible.
The air smelled like wet city and trees outside our window.

I’m heartbroken by this fire, by fleeing animals in the city, from trees practically screaming, from humans fleeing not knowing if their homes businesses would burn,
fear for the firefighters.  The fire effected us so much — depressed us stressed us,
made us feel trapped too.  Days I could not breathe.

    We are home, safe and sound. Lots of limbs down, yard damage and one broken window but still have a home. And power.
