Fire!!

Well, I guess living in a forest does have a drawback or two.  Especially deep into California's recent years of drought.

There's a huge, rapidly growing fire not too far from us.

It started late Saturday, though we don't know how yet, and we were put on almost immediate evacuation alert. We've been there ever since, and it's a deeply stressful time.  You can see the huge columns of flames from our driveway. Especially at night.

Thoughts on a Home Town 4th. . .

Sometimes I feel like I live in a mountainous version of Mayberry. Never more than on the fourth of July. Our darling little alpine village of 333 humble residents manages to throw the most wholesome, down home, charming and patriotic bash EVER. There's music and food and crafts and numerous private, yet communal, front yard parties behind endless white picket fences.

But the first event of the day is what really draws thousands up to our hidden little town from hours around: Our Home Town Parade.
