Cheryl - glad to hear that you guys are OK.........hopefully your dog will be waiting for you at the house. seems from Jane's email that unless the wind whips it up again.....that we 'may' be out of the worst of it.

If there is anything we can do- let us know.........

Charlie was helping with the fire as well as a lot of other people and we evacuated last night at around 8 and came down here.
Leslielea, I know your sister.
Charlie is calling the TWSD office now to see what's going on. Sherrifs dept. here or I should say the dispatcher doesn't have a clue what's going on.
One of my dogs ran off so he is still in timberon.
Excuse the errors. I'm on a laptap on top of the bed and typos are my thing now.
Jane, i didnt' call AB because we got down here so late. Just found out the people on Riverside were allowed to go back to there homes so I'm going to call the TFD and see if we can come home.
Song, so glad to hear from you, Sandy and I have been leaving messages for you on your phone..
You should be able to go back in, and there are back ways to get to your place, use them. Dixwood is the closest street to you that had fires.
Hope you find your dog.
Keep me posted on where you are - we all worry about you.

One of my dogs has big trust issues and we have a hard time getting him into a car so the police said to leave him run loose (which he was anyway)
Animals will run from danger and Whiskey is smart enough to go away if he did go home. Food and water are out so he's safe. He was at the lodge and if he didn't stick around there and went home, that's all i can hope for.

thanks everone for prayers.

Sorry to hear of those that have lost their houses. I'm in Alamo with my husband right now. We have a place on Birdman, the road above Miria and her mom. We were in Alamo yesterday getting tires on our van and found smoke bilowing into our back yard when we returned. The pic that Miria's mom took is looking up towards our house. We threw what we could think of into our van and headed down the mountain.
Just trying to find out what is going on.... man, I'm so sorry that Donna and Butch and Kathy have experienced such loss.
Miria... is your mom still on the mountain?
I'll keep reading here to see what anyone has to share with us. Praying for everyone's safety. Peace,Cheryl

Hi Cheryl - yes, my mom is still there at her house, Here's her report from this morning: "I called a friend who has a better view than I. He said that all he can see is one wisp of light-grey smoke, at 7am. I also called the fire station. They confirmed that it is under control and the crews are still fighting. It is not windy at this time." She also said that a helicopter was scooping water and dropping it this morning, but that the slurry planes have not come back yet.

Oakmont should be OK unless the winds really get bad, then most of Timberon would be in trouble.

Thanks for Judy's report. I talked to one of my neighbors this AM on Carson and my place is fine.

Pray for no wind... that and no rain is the enemy..

Jane

Been thinking of you all night. Here in Capitan I have 160 fenced acreas so can take horses and/or about 20 cattle. Need to be supplement fed but have a year round pond. Can also care for small pets until you get settled back in. Have a guest house someone is welcome to. Ann
