From someone anonymous: “You were in my neighborhood yesterday! Our home street was one of eight that was placed on pre-evacuation due to our closeness to Blodgett Peak! You were positioned in our son’s former elementary school! Thank you, again, from the bottom of our hearts from us and our neighbors for what you do!”
