Wildfires in Oklahoma

I got this picture from the internet http://www.newsok.com/ this picture was taken in a neighborhood in Midwest City. Over 100 homes have been destroyed (as of right now they are saying WAY over 100 destroyed).
As I made my 3 hour drive heading south to my hometown there were several roads, and highways that were closed due to the fires. 1-35 South was even closed and I ended up having to make a detour; which made my trip a bit longer. Jeff and B girl headed down to A-Town earlier that morning (w/ Aggie in tow) and the boys and I (and Cowboy and Samantha dogs) came as soon as L was out of school. What a trip it was in the EXTREME wind and very smoky skies, quite eery.
Hope you are all doing well. Please pray for the many many people whom have lost their homes in these fires.
Have a wonderful Easter weekend to all of you!!! Love you,

The MIL is visiting us from OKC and last night her cell was blowing up with calls about the fires. My thoughts and prayers go out to all in the Midwest City area.
