Evacuation

Posted on Tuesday, August 17th, 2004

Dave!The fire has jumped again, and now Hay, Nahahum, and Spring canyons have been escalated to Level 3 and must be evacuated all the way to Highway 2 on the river. From my window, I can see the flames now traveling down yet another hill, and can't help but wonder if I will wake to find everything across the river gone. The smoke is getting worse, and the smell permeates everything, including the walls of my apartment. I've been through a fire once before, and have no desire to do it again. Hopefully it won't come to that.

    Brings back memories of the Martis Fire in the hills above Reno a few years ago. Ash was falling like snow in the yard, in the canyon. Evacuations were drawing closer and closer, until conditions turned and we were spared.

    holy crap.. yah bush fires are scary things.. one went through near our place ten years ago and wiped out our church and a bunch of friends’ houses. The smell of smoke and the eerie colours the sky turns when full of smoke bring it all back to me every time. Hope yer ok *hugs*
