We’re still here. When I woke up this morning at 6am, the whole neighborhood was covered in a pungent gray smoke. The mountains were invisible again. There was nothing new in the news though, so I went back to sleep.
I just woke up again and noticed that in the news ticker, the Douglas County Sheriff has said that evacuation in our area is “highly encouraged.” We’re not going to leave yet, I don’t think. We’ll wait for either a mandatory evacuation notice or for the fire to be visible on the ridge 3 miles away.
I’m off to take a shower and get ready to go go go.
