Here is a link to the actual fire info with pics and maps.
We are luckily okay as far as getting in and out of the neighborhood. It's still about three miles away, but they are fighting it hard there now.
They are doing everything they can to keep it away from people. Eventually ere will be nothing left to burn on those fronts.
As far as the rest of the peninsula goes though, who knows now. There was the normal noon update. The evacuations have been called off, but areas are
still under advisory (read, keep your belongings packed and ready to leave). They also announced that though they will keep it from people it may just
have to burn itself out elsewhere and that could take all season. The resources needed to completely extinguish a fire like this are astronomical.
There aren't even roads to 95% or so of the burn areas. We just need a real rain that lasts for a week or more. We haven't had any precipitation to
speak of the entire month of May.
The smoke is the worst at this point. And now with the much needed clouds rolling in, the smoke has been pressed back to the ground. I just about
passed out turning the table in the camper into a bed to stack stuff on. I also got chewed out by my Honey, who demanded I go back in the house.
I truly thank all of you for everything, but most of all the distraction. We spent a few days at a nearby lake to get out of the smoke for the
weekend, and it was sooooooo blissfully peaceful. It's not as easy at the house when I should be outside working on stuff, and I can't.
