Our moving truck is supposed to be here in 3 days to load up, and then we will be moving into our new home in the Sierras, right? Well, not so fast there, cowboy. The Rim Fire is burning a hole in our plans.
Looks like we’ll be putting our stuff into storage and visiting with my Mum in the Valley for a few days, till they get this thing contained.
The folks on the fire lines are nothing short of Big Damn Heroes. Thank you, National Guardsmen and women, Cal Fire and the Forest Service, and all the other small crews and departments from around the state (and indeed, the country!) that have contributed resources to fighting this blaze. Y’all are remarkable.
I went on Flickr and found some photos that are ok to show here under creative commons license. If you want some others, clicky the link above.
I feel pretty anxious about it all, but what are you going to do? I guess this is an adventure we are having. My thoughts are with those displaced by this blaze and the folks whose homes are in its path. Two leggers and four.
