Just received a breaking news event.

There is a Grass Fire in Sausalito California, at Spencer Avenue and Wolf Grade. I live about 1.5 Miles from there. My wife and I are making all necessary preparations in case we have move out fast.

I will let you know what happens.

There are helicopters making water drops and one borite bomber is dropping retardent. Authorities have closed 101-South (heading to S.F.). Adding to the mess is an accident between a Park Service Truck and a Mercedes. Traffic is blocked at the inter-section. Marin City has only one way in and one way out.

Have a go bag ready, just in case. Put in it everything you absolutely would not want to lose.

Just my suggestion.

EDIT: this seems to already be your plan. Consider it reinforcement. :D

Even if there isn't a danger from the fire. If there is a lot of smoke in your area and you can afford it, I suggest it would be a good time to hit Reno for a week.

Park the car in the garage if available, driveway if not, pointed out towards the street. Put the go bag in the car. At first word, get in the car and be out of there, before everyone else hits the street and stops traffic dead.

For some reason, people think they can stop a fire that puts out a Hiroshima bomb's worth of energy every 25 minutes with their garden hose. They can't, and structure protection is best left to the trained firefighters with the 20,000 gallon water tanks and high-pressure hoses.

These fires don't need any more dead heroes.

The fires were contained by 7:00 P.M. There was an alert last night from the Sheriff's Office for possible evaucations through at least Thursday, when rain is expected.

Gail and I will be leaving today (Wednesday) for a few days with eyes toward Reno or Carson City (friends in both places). Our cat will be going with us. She hates the carrier but we will not kennel her.

Air quality is the shits, I have to wear my "Achoo Mask" everytime I step outside. The mask costs maybe $80.00, but the choice is the mask or an Asthma Attack.

There is a new fire, in Boulder Creek (Santa Cruz County). Fires in and around Santa Rosa are becoming contained.

Gail and I along with the cat are in Carson City. I checked SFGATE and the Marine Layer has returned and the fog is rolling in. Light Rain is expect on Thursday.

Hope the fire avoids your stuff, even if your family is safe. Good luck.

... stuff is replaceable, but still, it sucks when it all burns to the ground.

I'm glad the marine layer returned and rain is expected.



If you're in Carson City, that close, be sure you get all the way to RENO.
