Re: Fire Near Me!


My other daughter just got her evacuation orders. It looks like it's going to try to coming over the top of the last hill that separates Napa from our Valley.

Mike, that's way too close for comfort.....hope everyone gets out alright.

As someone already said, about an hour ago 1500 buildings destroyed and 1 death so far

I'm with you Tom. No words. It is so sudden and sweeping.

We are used to fires around here, but it is a whole different thing when it hits heavily populated areas.

Yes. It's very eerie out here. They now have all roads around my home blocked off. Once I leave they won't let me back in.
