Unfortunately we got a photo and the news that our house is burned. The fire is 100% contained now and lots of crews are working on clearing debris and restoring the town enough for evacuees to return. We’ve been getting a lot of rain storms that has slowed things down. Current estimate is for some of the town evac zones to open up this week and my zone some time before December 15th. It’s been hard staying away from the area three weeks now but staying in touch online and with the Pokémon Go community helps a lot.
Hello all, I know this is more relevant for Free for all Friday but affects comm sales a little so making a post here.
Thursday morning, November 8th, 8:30am my mom and our cat had to leave our town due to a major fire. We are safe in Sacramento. Our house is on the edge of Butte Creek Canyon near Magalia. I saw fresh smoke coming up and then some flames below. Praying for our house and firefighters. Have some defensive space but not much. This fire is unique in that the fierce Jarbo Gap winds blew high and fast, carrying embers on the wind. 80-90 percent of residential in town is gone and most commercial buildings.
For the people who have bought settei pages from me, I have your pages and the next lot. Put them in with my Mac desktop box. I would like people I’ve bought from to know mail is being held nearby in Chico. I am giving out my sister’s house address. Any packages in the mail will be held at nearby town’s post office centers. Please PM me if needed and will reply soon.
