When we left the North Bay hadn’t been engulfed in flames. Now entire communities have been consumed.
I gathered four giant trash bags of clothes to donate the victims, the people who lost everything. We will gather and donate more. There are no words to express the devastation.
It feels as if our country is being destroyed, piece by piece, by flood and flames.
The few friends I have in the North Bay are safe, and their homes are safe, at least they were when I last spoke to them. We shall see where the wind, and fire, goes.
So much loss and devastation in this country lately. Hard to wrap one’s head around.
