Never in my life have I seen something so devastating 😞 I’m from Georgia, so we don’t deal with wild fires out there that often, and especially of this magnitude, but driving through #ventura looked like a War zone. The #thomasfire has just obliterated everything in its path. Entire hillsides burned to nothing, homes destroyed, lives ruined, and countless animals killed. The visibility in this video is extremely poor due to the smoke, and just a few miles up conditions deteriorated even more. Now I don’t ask for prayers that often, but #socal is in need of many #prayers driving through this area made me extremely emotional and I felt so helpless, but I know the great fire fighters of this area are gonna get this under control soon, I know it’ll be a long recovery, but we can overcome anything.
Smokey sky and smokey minds. I thick muddy layer of heavy smoke blankets the coast from the south. Sometimes the truth is not revealed till we step outside of it and look on in. Those who walk within the carbon haze might not see it clearly from their perspective. It's like so many things in life, the best way to get out of a rut is to literally and figuratively step out of it and see things from a higher perspective. Even if we don't see ourselves caught up in something, it is still important to step out of our bubbled world to see it from the outside. I wonder how many of those within the smoke haze even realize that they are in it breathing it.
