Jo the Gypsy
My good friend Jo Castillo, who is an artist and blogger, lost her home in Bastrop, TX, to the wild fires burning everything in sight. Fortunately, she and her husband Gene were in Angel Fire, NM, for a few months renting a condo to escape the Texas heat. That means they do have clothes, computers, art stuff, etc. But as she said, they are now gypsies. My heart goes out to the people in Bastrop area who have lost their homes in such a devastating fire. Some of Jo's neighbors only had minutes to grab things before they were evacuated. Jo gives some addresses in a previous post of places to send money or aid to help others who have lost everything.
