    Just saw on the news that Wrongverb's area or at least part of it has evacuated. Hope he us fine. As for me my area has been touch and go for a while, but looks like we'll be fine. Still really smokey and trying to provide assistance where I can.

    Yes, I'm good and our area isn't threatened for the time being. Just going a little stir crazy having to stay so close to home lately.

    This video gives some idea of how much devastation these fires have wrought:

    My heart goes out to all of you impacted by these fires. We've been on evacuation notice here in Montana before, when winds suddenly shifted and stopped the fire from proceeding northwest and the fire was then able to be contained. We live a half-mile from any trees, but fields like ours were quickly going up in flames.

    I've never seen so many structures burn as is happening in California. The smoke here this summer was awful for long periods of time but nothing like what is going on there. It is unacceptable that when I go to CNN to catch updates, they are talking unceasingly about NFL players taking a knee.

    Hey, look at this shiny object over here!

    Stay safe!

    So many of these stories are just horrific. I'm sure people have read the one about the couple who rode it out in a swimming pool. Then I read about another couple who tried the same thing - the man lived with severe burns, his wife died in his arms.

    Just read about the elderly couple in the pool. Brutal. Particularly brutal because for some reason that family all tried to drive out of there separately. Someone should have put their 75 year old parents in their car with them.

    And neighbors left so many elderly.
