Our extraordinary new normal just keep getting weirder, scarier just when we’re getting used to it.
The sky is blue this morning. It’s no big deal for some because it is suppose to be blue but when the Sun is red and the sky, a warning sign of fire, danger and emergency the day prior, it is a big deal. It means today is hope for many who had to leave home. Today means we could breathe better as the air quality is cleaner though not necessarily safer.
The danger isn’t over for the Northern California wildfires. It’s too vast and widespread to control by our firefighters. The thousands of lighting from a very unusual thunderstorm early morning of Sunday, struck many of our driest land creating the perfect bonfire close to people’s homes and residential communities. As of Wednesday, Bay Area has 23 major fires from the total of 367 wildfires all across California.
They called it “Firestorms.” I thought it only exist in Sci-Fi, End of the World movies, but here we are, seeing it happen live. Nothing surprises me anymore this 2020, unless…
So, what’s next?
Lesson of the week. We will never be fully prepared when calamities happens, nature or man made. We will never be totally ready for life changing events. It is good however to have a bag with all the important things and documents we need just in case it’s time to evacuate and leave. It helps immensely to have a God and some sort of Faith because disaster can happen in an instant, and a great miracle may all of what’s left.
