I am happy to say that my house is still standing after coming very close in the Butte fire. The fire came within less than a mile from my house but the fire line was able to hold. Over 500 homes were lost in the area which is a huge percentage when you consider how many people live there. Here are some pictures and links...
|This was Saturday at 11 AM|
|Sheriff coming to tell us to evacuate but we weren't there - notice the glow in the air?|
|This is Saturday as the fire is close by...that is smoke.. not fog.|
|This is just before the fire got going... notice the difference in the air? Plus I love this turkey!|
|We had to wear masks the smoke was so bad..|
