From Paradise to hell
« on: November 12, 2018, 08:44:42 PM »

It seems that one of California's fires has wiped out the town of Paradise where I stayed two nights during a national contest in Chico, as they are very close. From Paradise to hell. So sad.  :'(

I hope none of the members of the board have family affected. Gustin (Justin) had said his uncle was a coach in Paradise.

I worked at an auto parts store in Paradise when I was going to school at Chico State. It is (was) a beautiful town. So sad to hear of the devastation.

That is really sad news.  I had no idea the fires went there.

I did some searching and found out that the Lutheran Church in town burned down along with the parsonage where the pastor and family lived.  The name of the congregation is Our Savior Lutheran Church.

Many have gone to Chico to escape the fires.  It is all so so sad.

Finally, they say in the paper that the fire is totally 100% contained.  That took quite a while!
