Mostly what I've been donating to are the places where people have opened shelters for animals from horses and donkeys and sheep and dogs and cats and ferrets. I saw a photo of a deer, mouth wide open trying to find relief from the flames and heat. I hope that many, many people have filled troughs and tubs with water for the wild ones.

Leeneia, the area where those people were trapped, is at Shaver Lake and Huntington Lake. It's a very civilized area not far from the city of Fresno. I went there many times when I lived in Fresno, and wouldn't dream that it would be a hazardous area. It's green and beautiful while Fresno is hot and miserable in summer. It's where Fresno people go to cool off in summer. It seems very safe. I'm sure this disaster was totally unexpected.

In rereading this thread I was astonished at how bad the previous years have also been. I remembered two years ago- who can forget Paradise, California?- but quite obviously really, really bad fire years are nothing new.

That said, this year is different, apocalyptic during and agonizingly so after. I have family and friends all through the affected Oregon areas, where I used to live and work and play and even though my heart is in my mouth with alarm that selfish as I am, I am oh, oh so glad that I am not there.

I figure there's a special place in Purgatory, if not Hell, for the Californians who decided that in the midst of the drought and fires, they simply had to go camping.   You know, the 200 that had to be helicoptered out at great expense and risk.

I wonder if they are related to the people who just had to be near Mt St Helen's in May, 1980.

Oregon shut off the electricity to rural areas so without power my inlaws evacuated 3 days ago. The Govenor has been unable to reach Trump for emergency funds or federal fire fighters. There's plenty of federal agents to fight protesters in Portland though. Fires are nearing southern 'Potland' suburbs.

Yes the conspiracy QAnon folks are blaming antifa for setting fires and overloading 9 11 calls today on 9-11. Since the huge fires are a new phenomena so it has taken folks by surprise.

Its sort of like my dream of impending nuclear war when people went to their front door and started blaming each other.

I have friends who wear covid masks when shopping and dust masks when getting into their cars so they can hunker down at home in stifling heat with their windows closed. The only up-side if you can consider it so, is that the sunsets are really interesting, with deep sunset colors fighting the ashen atmosphere.

This occurred a couple years ago in our town due to fires among the beetle killed trees to the south of Anchorage, but what is happening in California and Washington is far far worse.

Washington State, east and west, is also burning and where there aren't fires there are red flag warnings. NASA has photos of the smoke from space that offer a second good reason for people to wear their face masks. I heard from my sister in Seattle that the wind is shifting and they're due for the dense smoky air for a while.

Hello Mudcat friends... World is topsy turvy turbulence... My partner Dennis and I have found a delightful log home in Westwood, CA. To buy and we are staying temporarily in a small house in Quincy CA. About an hour away. Both of these towns are higher up in the Sierra Nevada and Cascades mountains and there is more snow here than where we have been living in the foothills.   
I played at a rest home with my musical partner who loaned me a guitar for the gig. The staff at the facility gave me a guitar that had belonged to one of their residents who passed away.   I have connected with the music community here and joined in with the performers who play each Monday at a cafe here. I also played at an open mic where a string quartet was also on the bill. This music has been therapeutic for me! Life goes on (in endless song...) and we are moving forward turning the page to a new chapter in our lives. Grief lies heavy in our hearts, but we trudge on.

I've signed in to fulfill Laurel's/open mike's request for me to post this on her behalf. You'll have seen she was able to make a brief post earlier this morning, but of course it's hard for her to get online.

She has been able to load Mudcat long enough to read the PMs 'Catters have left for her, so that's a good way to respond privately if you have thoughts about a replacement guitar so she can continue with music as solace and as a source of income. Alternatively, feel free to send me a PM and I'll send it along to her via email. I've included the link she sent if anyone wishes to and is able to help financially.

You'll see she is not asking for anyone to solve her challenges- just lend a helping hand as possible. She's a survivor... her second loss of everything to fire.

From open mike/ Laurel today, November 23, 2018:
"I do so miss my guitar... It will be difficult to replace her... She had been with me for nearly a half a century. "Martina" was a 60's era Martin D-35-S and there may not be others like her available. If anything similar can be located I would be very grateful for any leads... I do have a gig coming up, and it would be therapeutic to play again! I do have a go fund me account which might be a help if any funds are needed for instruments. Link to help open mike / Laurel after Calif. fires

Thank you!

Well, finally, we have rain. The fire in Paradise started 8 November, about 6:50 AM. By dawn the next morning, it had destroyed Paradise and part of Magalia. Critical fire weather conditions spread the fire to over 100,000 acres in the first two days.
Here are this morning's statistics:

Size (acres): 153,336 [239.6 square miles]
Percent Contained: 80%
Estimate of Containment: Nov. 30, 2018
Personnel: 3,745
Structures Destroyed: 17,157
Civilian Fatalities: 81
Single Residences Destroyed: 12,637
Single Residences Damaged: 421
Multiple Residences Destroyed: 310
Commercial Destroyed: 483
Commercial Damaged: 100
Other Minor Structures Destroyed: 3,718
Civilian Fatalities: 79

Paradise and neighboring Chico have had almost an inch of rain. We're at Applegate, almost a hundred miles south, and we've had half an inch and more coming. I suppose there will be mudslides in the fire area, but this rain is a great relief.

I wish the best for Laurel and all others who have been affected.

In that photo with a few houses still standing it reminds me of a story I read over the weekend where I woman got a call from a stranger. They fled their home, but an ambulance broke down and burned near the house so someone crawled in through a dog door to open the garage door and several sheriff's deputies kept the roof wet and cut brush around the house and nine people sheltered in the garage as the fire passed over. They and the house survived.

My friend from Heritage of Scotland summer schools at Stirling back in the 1970s/80s (with Jean Redpath) lives in 1000 Oaks so I was worried about her - didn't think she would have been in the bar - she wasn't - (why oh why do so many Americans respond to a mass shooting - by going out and buying guns? No-one outside of USA can understand that!! Ban the damn things!!)
Anyway her house is close to a forested area and doesn't seem (google maps) all that far from the Paradise fires but she is fine and not worries at the moment - fingers crossed.
However my heart aches for all the poor animals both wild and domestic that are running around in panic - people can choose where they live / when to leave, animals have no option.

I spoke with a friend from Ventura, CA, last night: she's a professional in the county park system and spent many years, as I did, working for the Forest Service and the Park Service as a ranger and a fire fighter. In December 2017 there were horrific fires in the same general area, and one of them burned to within a couple of blocks of her house. The chaparral area has been colonized by all of the neighborhoods but the tinder dry landscape does what it's going to do - it burns, houses and all. And basically the fuel that was left after last year's fires is what is burning this year. The county is going to be bare of living trees when all of this is over.

Trump has threatened to withhold all Federal disaster aid relief from the California fire victims. He says he is blaming/punishing the Firefighters and Forestry Dept. for their incompetence. After all upstate NY and 5th Ave. never have such problems. Trump naturally wants people to know that Californians have betrayed him by being a Democratic stronghold.

This disaster is a reality and not a partisan political football Mr. Trump. Climate has changed to the point that all four seasons are now considered to be the fire season.

California has simply never seen fires like this before, according to the reporting in New York Times. And you can ignore Trumps rants and threats about withholding money for fire fighting and forestry due to "bad management" - he doesn't know what he's talking about. This isn't a case of forest management. This is the "urban interface," this is other stuff than managed forests or wilderness.

I'm so sorry, Laurel, but I'm so glad you're all safe.
