Eileen, if this is inappropriate, please remove. Just want to let my BC family to know what's going on here.
I live in Sonoma County, CA, about an hour north of San Francisco. We are being hit hard by fires. Over 15 fires across 3 counties. 11 confirmed deaths, over 150 missing persons reports. Today is predicted to be a very windy day, and last I looked, containment is at 0%.
I can't post links, some technical glitch, but if you want more info, start w/NBC Bay Area News. Sonoma County Fires would be another place to start.
Sonoma & Napa counties are a huge part of California's wine industries. And there are other thriving agricultural businesses here, including sheep, beef, and horse based businesses.
I am safe, and I've been able to get in touch with family & friends. I'm ready to take Gibbs and get to a safer place if needed. Just hearing a plane flying low over my place as I type this. Fire spotting, probably.
Prayers are always good. I'll try to keep updates posted.
