After last year's 18 day evacuation, we kind of know what to do if it happens again, & with the fires getting closer, its not beyond possibility this year.

Its just that my husband is recovering from getting his defib/pacemaker implant, & I'm waiting for my second hip replacement, so that makes things difficult for us. I was waiting last year for the first hip to be done, & I'm in the same damn boat again! Can't cut a break.......sigh.......

I hope the fires come nowhere near you!

We're being affected by the Holy Fire to the south of us. Ashes are all over my tomato plants, all over everything, but just a little bit so far.

 

One development about 6 miles away is under voluntary evacuation.

Here are some photos I took from our carport, I was using a zoom lens maxed out.

I hope things go ok for you guys Jade I'd hate to see you have to leave your house again. How awful. And what is happening in California is really disturbing.

 

We've been getting some really interesting sun rises and sun sets around here from all the haze of smoke in the air. There are fires burning in eastern Washington too.  Lucky for us it hasn't been as bad at the last couple of years, some days I couldn't do anything outside it was making me sick. So I can't even imagine being much closer to the fires. 

A few years ago we went east and had to drive through probably 200 miles of smoke just hanging in the air, it was horrible, and I couldn't imagine having to live through it, atleast we could drive out of it and get home to fairly clear air.

We've been getting the California news & have been wondering about you, UG.

 

We have a new fire less than 20 miles away, so they are getting closer. Our alerts went up today, so we have to pay attention to the updates.

Yesterday I could see fire near a development about 4 or 5 miles away that is under voluntary evacuation.  I thought the Holy Fire was getting closer, but as it turns out these were intentional backfires done by the firefighters.  The Holy Fire is up to 54% containment and the weather has cooled some.

Its cooled down here too, for the moment. Lets hope they can get things controlled soon.

 

My husband is flying to Kelowna today to see his cardiologist for his 6 week checkup, & he may get a view of some of the fires from the air. When he flew out for his surgery, he saw the results of many fires from last year. It stunned him just how close things got to our city.
