It was nice of you to fly by with your concerns. It's been pretty smoky here, though not quite as much smoke as we had last year. We did get out a few times last week, for just a short time.
We're still doing ok here. The weather hasn't been nice to the firefighters and one fire further into the wilderness has been spreading like crazy (I'll write more further down on this one). The Log fire, (close to us) has so many personnel working on it, trying to stop it going over another ridge. There are too many residences in the way. They brought in the national guard today, to help with the dozer lines. You've seen photos of the terrain up there, it's not been easy for the firefighters.
If we do go under evacuation advisory, we have one farmer who's offered to take all the animals. So that's a big relief.
The people who brought their goats to us last year just had to evacuate tonight. The larger fire here, is in the mountains on the other side of their home. We've not heard from them, so not sure where they put their goats. There are some scattered homes up in the mountains there and after the heavy winds, had to evacuate fast. The firefighters also had to get out before being stranded. Very scary stuff!
It's a war zone out there, with helicopters and jets flying overhead with water and retarder.
Well I'd better leave you and hope you get some pleasant dreams.
Good night and wonderful to talk with you! It's been so long.
