Jeffery...yeah it was a good idea to prepare and I wait until at least saturday to return. The wind could cause another situation. But it's looking better for us. Everybody loves wine country, but I wouldn't compare it to France. We have inferior wine and they have better cheese
Our local bars were open. Happy hour resumed, and a guy brought in a huge pot of chicken soup that was really good. The situation is bad. Everybody knows somebody affected by it.
Sorry about your friends Oski. I figured you were in a safer zone than most. It's too bad about the friends. The weather cooled down a lot too which was good. I finally removed the guitar from the car, it's tempting to turn on the heat for a minute to warm it up. Humidity was really low here in the 10-14 percent range when the fires started.
When the weather cooled and humidity increased that was a good sign. At around 2 in the afternoon we had air support working on the fires, we never saw the support before so close. It seemed like they had a grasp on it in this area. Surrounding areas are still going. It seems like higher percentages of containment are the on the way.
