It’s Been a Tough Couple of Weeks

One Week Ago

Yeah, it’s been a tough couple of week. Below is a picture I took a week ago (October 15, 2017) from the top half of our driveway. You can see the massive, massive, wide and high, smoke from the Northern California Wild Fires some 15-20 miles away.

Picture of Sonoma Mountain with a massive billowing expanse of smoke.

One Week Later

I took this picture today (October 22, 2017) from about the same spot. You’d have to squint or zoom in on the picture to see the faint wisps of smoke.

Same view as previous photo only without the massive amount of smoke. If you squint you can still see some.

Fortunately, we did not have to evacuate. My friends and family did not lose homes. But I know many people who did. I am so grateful for First Responders. CalFire expects to have the fires fully contained this week.
