We have been worried sick about our friends in the Smokies this week. Fortunately, I got emails. Ranger Heath, who lives in Gatlinburg up against the park border, is fine. He and Dana are staying in a hotel until their power and water are turned back on.
Boss Larry and Kristen are also fine, except that he has two ear infections.
Glad your friends are OK
It was a relief to hear from the ones who live closest to Gatlinburg. They are the main characters in my book!

Glad your friends are all OK. Husband and I were near there several years ago and it is such beautiful country.
I’m sure it will be beautiful again one day. Boss Larry said that a lot of historical buildings were lost, though. I bet the forest will recover quickly. The saddest part is the loss lives and homes. Today, it hit me that a lot of people have lost their jobs in all the businesses that burned down.
Many prayers needed for this area!
