FIRE - update 12:05pm

No pictures this time. The sky has cleared considerably just south of me. The big problem now is falling ash and the heavy smoke smell. I'm not going outside for a long time now. The smoke smell triggers my migraines. I'll keep you posted on evacuations, etc. The inside/outside kitties (Cheeto and Frankie) have given up on the fact that I'm not going to let them out no matter how much they beg. They have, however, hidden themselves somewhere in the house. Gizmo is still my shadow. Gizmo's tummy must be upset because I'm finding kitty puke everywhere. Poor thing. I'm watching tv and coloring images for cards. I've calmed down quite a bit now. It helps to post.

Glad to hear that you and the kitties are safe for now! Poor babies have to wonder what the heck is going on! I will continue to pray that the ash and heavy smoke stay away from you. Stay inside!

Glad you are ok, Debbie. We left about 10am, and just barely got off the mountain in time. Glad to be safe in the smokey valley.
