This morning we awoke to thick smoke hanging in the air. We tried to get some information on what was going on with the fires. Where they were located, what direction they were moving in, what roads were still closed and which were now open. Can you believe we couldn't find a single bit of information on the radio? I'm assuming that the stations here must be on some sort of Sunday pre-recorded programing because not even the news was "new". So we took a ride out toward the west to see if we could tell how far away the fires were. We didn't go to far but realized that if they were still burning we were going to have to evacuate. Mars re-installed the 5th wheel hitch in the ( wrecked and totally illegal) truck and was in the process of taking the skirting off the trailer when we realized that the smoke was clearing up and we couldn't see the smoke clouds in the sky. The fires has been contained. We came so close to loosing most everything this weekend. Many did. My prayers are with them all.
