Angry Immediate Evacuation, The bear fire

Brutal! This morning it was super windy, had to stake down stuff before light out then when it did get light out it was smoky (it's been that way for some time here in Commifornia) but it was different today. It was like a cloudy day but it was red. I noticed but went about doing whatever with the kids then looked at my phone and saw an emergency alert "get out now" on my cell, geebus! Had to pack everything I could in the truck and get my kids out. I've never had that kind of anxiety in my life

Our road is closed now so I can't get the RV, tractor or anything else. We're in town now and safe at a hotel. Everything I keep seeing online is it's pretty much gonna take it out

THIS SUCKS!!!

Please Pray

Vic

Fire map this morning. My place is 19 Happy Hollow Ln in the middle of this. We're a couple miles up from the lake and from the news and whatnot it's already down to the lake. We don't live there but there's a lot that do

We're safe in a hotel in town. Soon as the kids wake up, we're heading to the Gay Area, then I'll have my meltdown

Dang man, I’ve dealt with hurricanes my entire 53 years on this planet. So I get you can’t always take all your stuff with you before it’s too late.

But you literally just needed to hook up, disconnect and run with the camper. And you were actually there.

What gives?

Include Washington state and Oregon, too. They’re being slammed with wildfires, as well.

I live in Woodland which is about 23 miles northwest of Sacramento, and is dusk outside due to all the fires and smoke. Wife made a mistake last night to open up and run our whole house fan, and we wake up with ash in the house. Spent most of the morning vacuuming. The entire west coast needs a good soaker to come in and drop 2-3 inches of rain.
