Smoke watch

We're still here in the Lockheed Fire vicinity. We signed a waiver for the sheriff to defy mandatory evacuation orders. Anything could happen, so it's just wait-and-see. Andrew is hosing down the roof. The cars are facing out. We're going to hang in as long as we can.

    Wow, it looks really scary over there! It's starting to look worse here too so I'm thinking that you guys should get outta dodge soon!! Don't stay too long dang it!
    Emma keeps calling me worried about you guys . . .would love to tell her you've gotten sensible and left!! :)

  2. Don't stay to long!!! I

  3. Awwww, Emma is so sweet. Andrew is calling Bernard's phone number right now to assure her we're okay. Is that where she is? Sorry we're so stubborn. But if an ember blows over, at least this way we're here. I never thought I'd be one of those people who defy evacuation orders, but the world, it is changing. We'll try not to show up at your house in the middle of the night. : )

  4. Hey guys, hope your water is flowing strong. We're all thinking of you.
