Apples & Horses

The fires are still going. What a week. Our neighborhood remains just outside the evacuation area, so we’re still home. But the 513,000 people who have been evacuated are still not home. Keep sending prayers to San Diego! (The Hostess with the Mostess, a fellow San Diego blogger, had to evacuate twice yesterday! She wrote a good post about the fires yesterday if you are interested in reading more.)

Today we discovered there are some “refugee” horses staying on a grassy area near our apartment. Nate picked up some delicious NY Honey Crisp apples yesterday at Trader Joe’s, so we decided to share the ‘deliciousness.’ Cate and I just came back from visiting and feeding the horses (nice to get out of the house for a minute, even if the air is disgusting). They were beautiful and gentle animals. Hopefully they can go home soon!

It’s been amazing to see this week how calm and supportive the community has been. The evacuation locations are organized, clean and literally flooded with donations from other San Diego citizens. It is refreshing to see people come together in such a positive way at such a difficult time.

    Glad you guys are taking care of the horses (and I’m pretty impressed that you were willing to share Honey Crisps–those have to be the best apples ever grown!) and staying safe. You are all in our prayers.

    JANE! We fed and took a picture of those SAME horsey’s over at our side of the Mesa’s (right before we hopped on a plane outta SD). We’re breathing easier and praying for our fellow San Diegans…Let me know if your sitch changes at all…I.

    We’re keeping a close watch on the happenings out west. We too are praying that things get better out there real soon! BTW the foliage is just about peak here – in case you wanted to know! Love the pics with the punkins’! Kim and the Hill Gang
