    Looking past their own challenges, Santa Rosa couple worries about the fate of others in a Red Cross shelter in Santa Rosa

    Sam and Mickie Orchard had their bags packed on Sunday night October 8th, prepared to leave their Santa Rosa home the next day for a vacation in Palm Springs. Instead, shortly after 2 a.m. Monday morning, the couple took an unplanned trip to a shelter the American Red Cross opened at the Finley Community Center in town.

    Receiving a "reverse 911" phone call, Sam, 87, and Mickie, 86, were told to immediately leave their Lake Park Drive home in the Neilson Ranch area of Santa Rosa. Their neighborhood was one of many that emergency personnel evacuated due to the wildfires that ended up cutting a destructive path across this part of Northern California that week.

    Three days later after receiving their leave-now order, the couple still didn’t know if their house was standing — or reduced to ashes like so many homes in this community. "We didn't know about our home or our possessions inside it," Mickie said. "The law enforcement people in our area won't let us get close enough to our street to find out."

    While clearly worried about their own plight, Mickie and Sam found time during their third day at the shelter to express real concern for their fellow shelter residents. "It's just heartbreaking for all of these people who have lost their homes," Mickie said. "We may be with them; we just don't know."

    And the couple also expressed great admiration for the Red Cross. "My lord, they've done everything for us," Mickie said. "They given us a place to sleep, food to eat, and even helped us with our prescriptions.

    "Everybody here has been so wonderful," Sam added.

    In fact, the couple was making plans Wednesday to support the organization that has come to their aid — once they get their lives sorted out. "If we ever get access to our bank accounts," Mickie said, "we are going to make a donation to the Red Cross."

    california burning

    It seems like everyone I know knows someone who has suffered a loss in the fires that are still raging in Northern California. Sonoma and Napa have been featured prominently in national news but my former home county of Mendocino has also been hit hard. The Redwood Valley house that my mother designed and built and lived in for over 40 years was destroyed by fire last year soon after it was purchased by the surrounding Frey Vineyards. The new fire has now claimed those vineyards and most certainly double-burned my parent's old home. So heartbreaking for the Freys, neighbors and countless others in this beautiful part of the country. Peace and healing to them.

    **an aside on the roses. I accidentally chomped off buds. I hate it when I do that. I tried to save them.
    they tried to bloom.

    and as another aside the exquisite watercolor of gracie is from my friend, ineke. in gracie's memory.
