Judy continues to volunteer at Luther Burbank Home & Gardens from April through October. She enjoys welcoming visitors to this lovely historic site.
This October we were evacuated in the middle of the night because of the Kinkaid fire. Fortunately
escaped damage, though there were power outages in some areas and lots of smoke for several days.. We were able to return after 2 nights away. But power outages during high winds in dry weather are now considered the “new normal.” Santa Rosa
We are looking forward to the holidays with the whole family.
We hope that you have had an enjoyable year and wish you the best for 2020!
