This is an interesting story!
Last Monday, September 5, I blogged about my niece’s home in Bastrop which burned down in the firestorm. Pictures and story here. They received early notification about their home’s loss due to a neighbor who lived across the street from them who is a law-enforcement officer and was present assisting the fire-fighters.
The above mention law-enforcement officer took these pictures of their home and emailed it to them.
The flag that hangs in front of their home
was virtually untouched.
The flag was not placed there after the fire,
nor was it photo shopped.
Tracy and her husband have not yet been allowed back into their neighborhood to see the destruction firsthand. Bastrop fire officials are letting small groups of residents return by appointment. They will be allowed in for a short time on Thursday.
A television station in Austin has carried the story and the picture was in the Austin newspaper. My hubby, Mr. 2805, saw the story on a local Dallas television station, and it may have run on national television.
The fire in Bastrop county has consumed 1500 homes, 34,000 acres, a pine forest, and is 70% contained.
The flag surviving the fire is a beacon of hope, and this young family are people of faith.
Until next time, Honey
