Decent weekend. But a Nerve racking ending. Packed to evac

Damn it.

I知 packed to run. Fire is in Napa and apparently headed this way. Taking the basics. It will hurt to lose my stuff.

But I知 not grabbing everything. Futile.

I hear nothing but sirens. No sleep tonight I suppose.

I might have a mild PTSD affect going. Fire trucks ripping by sirens on, effs me up. Big time.

Ahh, this sucks! Hard to hear, pelican brother on the edge and a beautiful state on fire.

Wishing best to you and the wife Vash..

Prep for the worst, hope for the best. Might be a good time for that prolonged visit to your wife's brother?

Agreed. Drop in on the BIL.

Video your stuff now, as you aren't sleeping.

Good luck. We just did this drill. It sucks.

Sorry to hear this Vash. I too will say a prayer in hopes the winds change and your house is saved.
Good luck

Fought traffic out. We are in Martinez CA. All good.

Fire is over the ridge and heading down to the Cliff abode. Eek.

Nothing but fire trucks heading in. People headed out. I got a great feeling. They will stop it.

1 or 2 beers at the BIL and I知 going to bed. Thanks.

Not fun. At the beginning of every hurricane season, our neighborhood POA sends out an email with a list of things to take when you evacuate. One of the things is your insurance policy for your property. Probably not a bad idea for you also. Hope all goes well for you.
