« Part 7: Maybe looking better Part 8 of FIRE! series Part 9: Home Again! Yay! »

Well, it’s looking like my parents should be able to return home tomorrow. They were hoping for today, but it’s sounding like that probably won’t happen. There’s still a few hot spots in the canyon behind their house and they’re concerned about it coming back up again like it did last time.

My dad is going to drive up to the house later today and check things out. If the smoke is down enough and the area looks safe then they might be able to return today, but it’s more likely that they’ll have to spend one more night at the High School.

Thank you all so much for your prayers and concerns. They know for sure that the house and shop are okay and they’ll be able to move back in soon.

Hopefully the next post will be from my dad.

Deep breath (but not too deep, ‘cause there’s still a lot of ash flying around…). Fingers still crossed because, as you said, there’s still chance of a flare-up.

My daily bike ride is a loop, normally the westbound stretch is a challenge because it’s wide open and into the prevailing winds, and the eastbound stretch is in a canyon in the trees. Today the wind was from the east and pretty harsh even down there in the trees. Hope that’s just northern California thing, and you folks down south get more favorable weather!
