Fire update

I’ve gotten some inquiries for an update on the fire situation here. Yes, the fire has continued to grow and has changed direction at times, but it has not come any closer to AAUGH.com central, we’re still about 10 miles away from the closest part of the burn region. We are not in the evacuation region. Folks we know have been evacuated, but as far as we know, none of the people we know have lost houses (although people¬†they know definitely have.) If anything, we’re less worried about the existing blaze (it’s the “Thomas” fire, for those keeping track) and more worried about the same conditions that stoked that and several other blazes starting another one. We’ve got perhaps another day of the Santa Ana winds ahead, after that things will hopefully be more manageable.

Our town has cancelled its Christmas parade which was to be tomorrow, but encouraging people to go out and stand in, much less march in, the smoky air would’ve been a bad idea.

We just ordered new curtains. Would we have done that if we thought the house was going to go?
