As you may or may not know, on September 6, 2020, the Bobcat Fire in Southern California broke out near the Cogswell Dam area in the west fork of the San Gabriel Canyon. To date, more than 44,000 acres of the Angeles National Forest have burned as a result. Fortunately, because of the tireless actions of first responders, the fire has not damaged the Mt. Wilson Observatory, a historic site that is also important for current astronomical research, weather and communications! The fire is still raging near us, but thank goodness wind changes are bringing some respite from the horrific smoke we have had lingering for the past week.
This morning, I dropped off two orders (most folks refrained from orders this week due to the evacuation warning we are under in Altadena), AND also two donated bags of soap to first responders at local firehouses 11 (on El Molino) and 12 (on Lincoln), who are keeping us safe! I made sure that none of the bars smelled like smoke, as I am certain that they have smelled that enough.
While it was a slow week at the market, I am busy creating my holiday campaigns and catalog for online orders. I have begun planning (albeit a bit slowly because of the fire) my fall/holiday product line and have just added a few soaps that reflect the season.
Cranberries, pumpkins, apples, and peppermint chocolate are all making their way into this season's soaps. I should have my holiday catalog ready for publication in the next week, in the meantime you can check out my shop for updated listings of products.
Orders placed between now and October 15 receive 20% off your total offer, as well as a free gift!
Sunrise Meadow Farm is anxiously watching the spread of the Bobcat Fire here in CA, as well as sending many prayers to folks in Northern California, Oregon, Washington, and those who are near or experiencing the west coast fires; we send our prayers to the individuals affected by Hurricane Sally on the Gulf Coast as well.
Stay safe everyone!
