The Carr Fire

Bill asked if we saw any of the Carr fire. It is burning on the other side of the freeway from where we were and South a little. We were there last weekend and I think the fire started on this past Wednesday. My son was up there on Thursday for business and said the electricity was off in the entire town so he turned around and came home.

This fire is a long way from done.

We are safely home. 


  1. So many have lost so much.
    It's good to hear your safe.

  2. Thats crazy! I have friends who live in Redding....scary stuff.

  3. Mark
    I saw on the news last night that Redding was hit hard, really feel for all that lost their homes.
    Jason told me yesterday that they are getting individuals in the hospital with respiratory problems from all the smoke. You guys stay safe while traveling and even after you get back home with all the smoke.

  4. This has been an unbelievable summer for fires. Stay safe my friend.

  5. Yikes! Glad to hear you're OK, but man if that's not scary. Those fires seem to get wilder each year.

  6. I thought about you too when I read about this fire. Hope all is well.
