Prayers for Curtis Van Carter - Napa Valley Burning

By
Real Estate Agent with DFW FINE PROPERTIES 0506509

by Patricia Feager, 10/11/2017

 

Please keep Curtis Van Carter, his family, friends, their property, the people in Napa Valley, their livelihood, all creatures, plants, trees, animals, and all the people in Napa Valley in your thoughts and prayers.  The last I heard from Curtis a short while ago was this:

 

"thank you all for your concern. There are suppose to be 45 mph wind gusts tonight so no telling what will happen. I hear parts of Calistoga are on fire. I am packed and fingers crossed cvc"

 

It hasn't been a month yet since I got back from Glacier National Park and saw the devastation from wildfires out west. Trust me, wildfires changes everything from the landscape, property, firefighters on call, to the economic woes and the direct impact it has on the economy.  This summer's powerful hurricanes and flooding, including summer and fall's wildfires have spurred many lawmakers to think about conservation, preservation, damns, dikes, infrastructure, rescue efforts, food, water, transportation, volunteer help, donations, and forest management. But in the meantime, people who live in these targeted areas must learn how to cope, get out, problem solve, be prepared, and deal with the emotional stress of heartache and sorrow.

 

Napa now has thick smoke blanketing the area and fires are raging out of control. Are we in the midst of an Apocalypse or are we being tested? Maybe it's time for bedside manners. When was the last time you knelt down to pray?

Thanks Patricia, we need all the prayer we can get.  Many of my clients and friends are at risk, and though the fire is a ways way, both my home and office are smoke covered today.  Hoping the winds die down and these fires get under control sooner than later.

John Meussner - I will keep you all in my fervent prayers, especially the sick and elderly, babies, little children, and pregnant women too. In these fire infested forests and valleys, there is only danger, no song birds in the trees, not enough water to put out the fire, roads are impassable, and many firefighters are working endlessly to save everyone and everything they can.

Oh, my! Yes, I will keep Curtis in my thoughts and prayers. Please keep my high school friend and family in your prayers as well. They live in Santa Rosa & have evacuated once already. Their daughter lost her home.

Mary Yonkers - of course I'll keep your high school friend and their family in my prayers too. Having been through a house fire and flooding too at different times in my life, I know how inconvenient it is and not healthy either.

Curtis Van Carter - There's a lot of history in Calistoga. The evacuation must be surreal to those affected, as if it was a scene from Germany during Hitler's time. Lives interrupted. People being ushered out, don't look back, no time to pick and pack... Sending prayers.

Patricia,

The last two evenings, I have been contacting friends and clients in the Napa, Sonoma and Santa Rosa area.  The majority have been evacuated, and others have their cars ready to go.  AR member Jim Cheney is one of them.  I am hoping that this will be over sooner than later.  A

I don't pray, so that's an odd question to me, Patricia. Sometimes you praying people forget there are a lot of people for whom praying is a foreign process. Just sayin' . . .

There are other things we can do. Like donate money. 

The wildfires are so bad in my area that just an hour out of town the air is pitch black like a fog, and you need a painter's mask to help breathe. Our papers are filled with images of people's homes burned down to the ground, and everybody is crying, hugging each other.

These are times we need to come together and hold each other.

Patricia mother nature has been working overtime this year with a lot of destruction.  This country is made of strong people and we will survive and rebuild. 

The power of prayer is great!

Hello Patricia,  With your concerns of us out west I feel better knowing you are doing OK after what hit Texas and then Florida.  A California boy, I have friends in Napa area also.  It is a minute to minute situation.  As everything nature...very humbling and scary at the same time.  Take care - mark
