The fires I mentioned in yesterdays post have turned into major fires. The Witch Creek fire is the one of the two that most directly threatens where I live and play. By play I mean probably 75% of my bike ride routes go through already burned areas. That number will probably be higher when this is all over.
There is a non-zero chance that we will have to evacuate from where we live. I’m not too worried right now as there is very little wind in and to our location right now. Without the high winds, the fire will not advance here very fast. We have thought about what we’ll take and where we’ll go if conditions change. Luckily, we have renters insurance so as long as we remember to take irreplaceable items, we’ll be fine financially. We have no idea where we’d live if the apartment burns down.
