Checking In

I posted recently that we had a dramatic week.  It's only gotten worse from there.  Ugh...

A lot of mini dramas.  But the large drama is one of the big fires in our state.  I expected last Tuesday night that our family cabin was long gone.  The cabin still stands because...  The wind has been blowing (for a whole week) in the opposite direction.  Of course, now it is looking like it will be a miracle if either the cabin or our family camp site survives.  Camp is about 30 miles away, but the fire is raging in that direction and getting very close.  I never in a million years imagined a fire so big/fast that would knock out both at the same time.  😱

I looked it up, the last big fire that threatened our cabin lasted for a month.  It seemed to drag on forever.  I don't expect to have any finality to this situation for a very long time.  

Oh yes, and the miracle did not happen, MH's movie shoot got postponed indefinitely.  His filming locations are all under threat of fire.  That's a super bummer and a huge blow to MH, but a small loss in the grand scheme of things. 

This is not the stuff I want to blog about, but I did want to touch on.  I just wanted to dive back into the minutiae and try to get back into blogging. 

Had some new dramas after starting this post, so I think I will just stop here and work on a new blog post.  I will update on fires when I have anything to update.

    I'm so sorry! I hope the cabin survives! My nephew's house was right on the fire line when the Ashland, Oregon fire was raging last year, but the wind blew the other way and the house survived. I hope that will be the case with you, too.

    So sorry to hear about the fires in your area and hope that the cabin withstands the fires! With DH’s movie could it be better to postpone until your fall season to be safe?

    @VS, unfortunately Fall is the worst of fire season. & then there is also COVID. Both COVID and the fires postponed filming. Both are on a trajectory to just keep getting worse.

    So sorry to hear about all of that. The fires have been catastrophic for so many.

    I really hope both manage to survive the fires. So sorry you’re going through these troubles.
