Update on our fire

Latest: The Official Report is that is is NOT our fire, after all. 😛 Now we get to feel guilty for being relived that it’s in someone elses town. 😦 It’s French Gulch and they are reportedly evacuating the town, which is not hard to believe as F.G. strings along a narrow canyon. The ash is still falling here and the smoke still high but thick. They are sending people to Weaverviille to the high school. The Searchlight says it’s 200 acres on one report and 2000 on another. I’d guess 200 at this time is more likely. Randy says we can unpack now, but I think I’ll just leave it like it is until we get a rain.

Early panic:
We have a fire here. I’m not sure what the situation is just yet because the power just came back on, but in case it goes off again I wanted you to know we may be leaving. And if we do leave we’ll be heading north. The rumor is that there is one Lewiston way and one up Swift Creek or Buckeye, nobody seems to know. Randy is in Trinity Center right now so hopefully he’ll have better news when he gets home. I took this photo just now, that’s the corner of my house looking south east. It’s ugly.
I’ve packed up a suit case and captured one cat. I’m making copies of my loom bookwork now before the power goes again. I’ll try to keep you informed.
But whatever happens, we’ll be safe. Cross you fingers for everyone’s homes, tho!

One thought on “Update on our fire

  1. Hope y’all stay safe! We just made it through the hurricane. Lots of trees down everywhere. It’s a real mess.

    The smoke looks horrible in your picture. Hope it doesn’t affect you guys too bad. I remember when we had the fire storms here and had to go everywhere with wet clothes over our faces so we could breathe! I’ll be praying for you guys and all the fire fighters!
