House Update after Butte Fire 9/20/2015

Hi

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...

Fire Map

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..
I am so grateful that we have a house to go back to... and now I can focus on the other things that need to be done.
