Fire Updates

September 3rd, 2021 at 04:07 am

Fire blew through camp last weekend (our city's family camp, in the Sierras).  The firefighters were camped out there and not a single structure burned.  🤯  It's still touch and go.  But maybe feeling a little more hopeful at this point.

By some miracle, the family cabin still stands.  It's on the west border of the fire, about one mile from the flames.  & I mean, they have that side pretty well under control at this point.  The cabin might live to see another day (or month, or year). 

The flames have blown about 30? miles east, to Tahoe.  I am looking at a map and it's about 40 miles on the twisty roads.  Maybe 30 miles as the crow flies?

The east side of the fire is about 3-4 miles from some homes we built in Tahoe (my job).  A homeowner stopped by the office this week.  He was very matter of fact about it, but said his home would probably burn down and asked if we would rebuild.  I don't know when I would have even thought about it.  Probably someone in the office would have brought up at some point.  I told MH it would be fitting, because that was some project from hell.  Between all the Tahoe red tape and the whole "Lake time" vibe when trying to hire people there.  Wouldn't that be icing on the cake for all that work to just burn up in smoke?  

Hope everyone else is hanging there with the various disasters.

    So many disasters, aren't there? I'm glad your family cabin is not one of them -- not yet anyway!
