Just a quick update. We're OK, at home, and the fire is "fully contained". My adrenaline levels are still through the roof. Thanks to all of you. Have a peaceful weekend.


  1. Thanks for the update -

    As for your adrenaline levels, that is oh so only natural -

    Please try to make the best of your weekend -

  3. I had no idea! So glad that you are OK. Stay safe. Give R & K a special pat from Barb - and a hug for you.

  4. How horrible. Glad you are safe at home. I am a little confused: was it just a drill - or was there really a new fire close to you? If it was a drill, I think it was almost torture so shortly af the big fire. Love and hugs EM

  5. missed the first post...shit, what a rush....glad all is safe...thinking of you...

  6. Glad everything is ok .. hope a good hike or bike ride will settle you all down.

  7. Glad that you are back home (since I just read the evacuation post). I am so glad that our fire season has been so quiet so far.

  10. EM: It was a real fire, a very scary fire that broke out fairly close to us and rapidly became a tree crown fire. That means that it was burning up in the forest treetops, and had the potential to spread long distances very fast. Fortunately, we had the best fire crews in the nation still nearby due to the previous fires so they responded extremely rapidly. Without them and their aircraft, our house might very well be gone.

  11. Sometimes I envy you for living in such a rugged, pristine corner of paradise. Then at other times, like today, the carefully tended order and routine of France seems very attractive. Hope that you've had all the excitement for the weekend!

  12. Your note to EM brings the terror of this event alive - so very scary and I'm so glad the close-by firemen were on it so quickly and efficiently. And soooo glad your house is safe and mostly, that you guys and the puppers are okay.
    Huge Hugs xoxoxo

  14. We are very thankful that you guys are ok. Fire is so scary.

  15. When I heard about that new fire's location, I was like ... Oh, crap! I'm glad they got it knocked down so fast. I'm glad all of you are safe.
