The CARR FIRE
We're good. I took Char home an hour ago, as they are starting to re-populate certain evacuated areas. We are east of the fire, about 7 miles from the first evacuated line. We have heavy smoke and ash falling from darkened skies. It's a mess everywhere but can't complain. We've been spared this time.
This area will never be the same. Our Whiskeytown National Recreation Area has burned all around the lake. Campsites gone - everything is pretty much gone. One of my many "happy places" it is a huge loss.
The only "disaster" I've been in - was in 1989 - the Loma Prieta Earthquake. Once again, with only minor damage, a cracked foundation, broken glass and pictures, we were spared.
I just don't know what is going to happen. I know many who have lost their homes. This will change our town forever.
Many good people are helping.
I am sure everyone has heard of the Grandpa who left his home and the fire overtook his wife and 2 young grandchildren. GUTWRENCHING!
