Aspen Meadows under Evacuation

Please send positive fire fighting thoughts to Rancho Capistrano, the equestrian community where Aspen Meadows is located.  The community is under threat by a wild fire and has been evacuated.  The terrain is very rugged; the fire started on a canyon where we rode all the time.  It is 1200 acreas and growing; no containment.  We have many friends there -- and of course, our beloved Aspen Meadows.


On a less important note, escrow did not close today but we are chugging along.  Everything has been approved, we're just waiting for the documents to be completed.

  2. Oh no, I hope everyone is ok and the fire is brought under control quickly.
    As TexWisGirl said, it kinda puts your delay into perspective

  4. It must be terrifying to be so close to the fire. Hope it's contained soon and no one is injured.

  6. I thought about Aspen Meadows and all your friends there when I saw this on TV last night. This is just awfully scary. I will keep that community in my thoughts. Hope all works out for you.

  7. ugh. That is not wonderful. Hopefully it will be at least contained and it burns back on itself and out...
