The Waycross wildfire continues. They should not have to evacuate any more homes tonight. The fire has consumed over 55,000 acres so far. The fire was 30% contained as of this morning. My understanding is that the size of this fire is almost unprecedented with the exception being a fire in 1955 that consumed 58,000 acres.
The wind changed today. I can smell the smoke of my neighbor’s land again. The ash is falling again, too. Bitter snows.
Thank God that the local faith community has stepped up to the plate. More updates later…
