Fire's in Pateros

Hi I'm Liz, Audrey's sister I don't know if you realize she lives in Pateros, WA.

The Carlton complex fire swept through town Thursday night.  Audrey and her family are all safe.  They did not lose their home but it was close.  Many neighbors and our parents lost their homes.  Everyone is OK.  We are so thankful everyone is alive.  

We do not know when power and internet will be restored.

  4. I am so sorry to hear many neighbours and especially your parents lost their homes, but very relieved Audrey and her family are safe. My family and I lost our home in bushfires here in Aust in 1983 so I understand how frightening a fire is, and how devastating it can be. Thinking of you all xx

  21. Oh I am glad to see an update. I'd mailed her because I knew that she lived in the Spokane area ( a few hours from Spokane ) and yet not which town or anything and I was worried / kept checking the blog and my email. Oh I am so glad that they are safe and their home is intact!

  22. Liz maybe we could start a collection to help your parents. It wouldn't replace their home but every little bit could help at least with immediate needs / if you think that is a good idea you could post an address for us to send $$ to. :) Prayers with you all.

  27. That s so frightening! I am glad to know Audrey and her family and home are safe. We were dead center here for Hurricane Sandy, so I know how scary natural events like this can be. Heartbreaking.
    Sending prayers for her and all who lost homes and businesses.
