City is now on fire

55 mph winds turned the fire over a ridge. Fire crews pulled back and structures are being lost. The fire line is now 5 miles from home, and what was looking good 3 hours ago has covered a lot of ground and is chewing into civilization. The north half of the city is gridlock cause you can't see anything with the smoke, visibility 20 feet. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the winds don't push it south once the sun sets and the weather changes. We are loaded up in the rigs, it's not messing around and I'll drive over yards to get out. It's north, here is to luck with the winds.


  1. Sorry to hear this, stay safe, my friend.

    Keep us updated as you can.

  2. ya - what Matt said! stay alert and safe buddy! i know that you can take care of yourself but i still worry!

    your friend,

  3. be safe. sending good thoughts your way.

  4. You and the entire community are in our prayers. Wish I was there to help, it's so frustrating knowing that help is not on the way from other states because the federal government can't get their act together.

    Hope things are still standing at your place. If you are going to get out make sure you do so before the rest of the hordes decide on the same tactic. If it's coming your way and you have water, water the lawn, water the roof.

  5. All is well for now, thanks everyone. We really appreciate the kind words!
