Here in Winthrop, Washington we are in sight of the largest wildfire in the state’s history. More than 400 square miles have burned so far, including the lower 20 miles of Methow Valley. In that stretch, the fire burned from ridge to ridge and right across the river. Every house that still stands in that stretch was individually defended by firemen.
A crew of firemen came to our house. They wanted to look around in preparation for fighting the fire coming our way. They were most welcome. They also wore hometown patches on their uniforms, from Syracuse. I had to ask where that was. Now that I know, I want to thank all the generous people in Utah for helping us through this crisis.
