CALIFORNIA FIRES

Postby panhard » Wed Oct 11, 2017 4:41 am

Hi Folks,

Down Under we are getting a great amount of TV coverage on the fires in California that have resulted in the loss of many lives and devastated a great number of communities. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims particularly any club members and also the courageous emergency services who risk their lives to save others.

Greetings from Concord, Contra Costa County, California, about 50 miles south of the fire storm area. All is fine here in the San Francisco Bay Area south of the Golden Gate. Not so for places north of here. I was just discussing with Oldschool1 our concerns for club members and users north of SF.

ALL POINTS BULLETIN: Those members and users north of SF, please check in here so we know you are OK.

We live on the western edge of Santa Rosa and just a few minutes from the total destruction that I'm sure you have seen on the news. Family members have lost everything. We our now a shelter for three extra people, four dogs, and a cat. Were in the middle of a remodel/addition and our small house is a construction zone, but we are all ok. We are still not out of the woods yet, as the fires are still burning. Who knows we may be asked to leave, but for now all is ok here.....

Just want to give a big shout out of appreciation to all the men and woman of Cal Fire, PG&E, Red Cross, and all law enforcement agencies working non stop to help fight this disastrous fire. You are ALL hero's in my book! As of today we are looking a lot better than last week at this time, still we won't be sleeping much, till this is over.........

My thoughts are with you, west coast brethren. That includes my brother and his family in SF.
