Doing fine here but those - several fires - are scary close. I'm less than 10 miles southwest of the serious Santa Rosa fire and yesterday (Monday) the wind was blowing from that direction. Fine ash and not so small charcoaled newspaper fragments fluttered down all day Monday.

Thanks for your concern!

This evening (Tuesday) I'm packing to return from the ranch to my home over in the Central Valley, simply due to responsibilities there. It would be better if I could stay here and monitor the place.

I'll post some photos but don't have time at the moment.

The main thing is, this isn't over yet. Wind like what pushed those fires forward is forecast for tonight and tomorrow. Because many of the fires are in rough inacessible terrain, only the urban fires have firefighters, spread thin, attending them.
