Through the Fire

Rileys 9.1.09Photo KTLA.comOak Glen Fire

Last Monday our hearts were in our throats as we saw the first photo above on the news; Riley’s Farm in Oak Glen with a wildfire bearing down on it from the hillside above.  The U-pick apple orchard and Living History Farm has won the hearts of Southern Californians and we feared the worst.

But by the Grace of God and His brave firefighters and bomber pilots, not a single flower on the roadside of the ranch was singed, despite the utter devastation across the highway.   Riley’s Farm remains a little patch of Eden.

  1. Wow.

    I am a little ashamed to admit that from New England the fire has been just another abstract news story.

    Thank you for putting a human face on events.
