Yesterday early afternoon, it started getting extremely dark here. It has not cleared up. As I write this it is almost like night, except the sky is the craziest shades of deep purple and red/orange.

The street lights are on, and from my front yard I can see the smoke bellowing over the nearest mountain ridge a couple of miles away. They've been talking about evacuating us. We have a dozen very nearby units that house our residents as well. This is getting scary close very quickly. For some reason we also have just experienced two days of the heaviest winds I've ever witnessed in a lifetime of living here. That has brought the fires upon us incredibly quickly. --73.25.xx.xxx

Is this part of the gender reveal party fire?

Pyrotechnics during the dry season of CA, all to reveal the sex of a pregnancy. Not sure that's such a good idea.

So, if the northern half of CA burns, it's a boy and if the southern half of CA burns it's a girl? That reveal party will be hard to top.

I'm actually surprised BLM rioters didn't think of starting forest fires. They like burning stuff. It seems like their M.O. --108.69.xxx.xxx

That is correct about the birds. We usually have seen hundreds (or at least dozens) of birds by this time of the day. I have not seen a single bird. All gone!

LLOTF, no we are a different fire than the gender reveal party fire. This one may be from the "Pick Your Gender from Among these 30 Options Fire."

I expect that once we are evacuated that the BLM crowd out of Portland will be swooping in to loot whatever we have left in our homes in the name of fairness (as their local leader has pointed out). And we have insurance, right? --73.25.xx.xxx

Thanks DJ and J.

No, DJ, we haven't given any guidance to this point as such a situation never really crossed my mind before. Guess I should have a plan for such an event. Maybe I need to reach out to the tenants and ask them for their advice ;) --73.25.xx.xxx

JB, stay safe. I've seen pictures of Alameda CA and it's the scariest thing I've seen. Apocalyptic. Of course you will evacuate if they say go?? --66.23.xxx.xx

JB, Stay safe and evacuate if need be.

About a year and a half ago there was a paper recycling plant fire that was three buildings away from my rental. I am friends with the neighbors to my rental and they called and told me but I noticed there was a big fire on my way home from miles away. When I got home I got the call. I could here explosions from propane tanks from my house where I live which is 2 miles away. The first thing I did was call my brand new tenants, that were still moving in, and tell them abought the situation and so the female came and got her cat. They were very easy to work with and it all worked out. There were paper ashes all over the property and house.

The Great smokey Mountains here also caught fire, I think last year or year before, and it spread quickly. My friends house burnt down but him and his family got out.

It may reach you very quickly so plan ahead and be ready. I wish you and your family well., --73.120.xx.xxx

Stay safe! Having had the ocean go through one house and another burn down, there is nothing you own you canít live without, donít hesitate trying to save something, just get out quickly if it comes to that. --107.77.xxx.xxx

I've driven many times through Mill City, Oregon. It's not that small of a town, and it is now all gone, burnt to the ground.

There were two towns in Washington burnt to the ground. They were small ones, but still....

The forest fires don't usually get into towns, so these are much worse than the usual ones, which are bad enough. --76.178.xx.xx

Severe early cold front caused worse than normal winds from the east. It's still Solar Minimum so very cold higher up. Those big windmills are connected via big cables to the towns they serve. Very dangerous not to mention unreliable. IF I saw what you are seeing I would start putting some stuff in the car just in case. --71.104.xx.xxx

Some of our neighbors on nearby streets have now been evacuated. The air is so thick with smoke now, my eyes start burning soon after stepping outside. Yes, O.W., many areas have been burnt out. Last heard, no less than 35 fires going just in Oregon.

This closest fire is at 50 percent containment now, supposedly. It looks like we may get evacuated soon. This really sucks. These disasters sure make everything else happening in your life seem insignificant.

Thanks again for the safe wishes! --73.25.xx.xxx

Thank you for the update. I hope your home and family stay safe. If they haven't already, they will cut the power in the neighborhood. Sounds like that you need to get out now to get to fresh air and safety. --73.120.xx.xxx

JB, do you have a bug-out kit? We do because of hurricanes. Computer, passports, cash, gun, medicines. Bare minimum. You can add stuff as you have time.

I don't keep a suitcase packed because we have more warning, but you might want to start packing those too! --50.82.xxx.xxx

I have had an influx of birds on my farm with the ground covered and the trees full. Never have I heard such a racket. We also had very high winds for about 10 minutes two nights ago, I was blown over.

Strange things.

Even though you might be surrounded by 30 genders, not many of them procreate. Stay safe. --216.23.xxx.xx

WMH, I know you get the hurricanes there. I was thinking of you when this started happening and thought how this must be like dealing with a hurricane coming your way. Same type of horrible, helpless feeling...

We just started getting some bags together. I don't even know what to start packing. My mind's not working so clear right now. I'm going to have to do a search to help me think of the things I should be taking with. Your list seems like a good starting point (passport was a great one I may have forgotten). I wish I could grab up all my tools. The cost to replace them will be awful. --73.25.xx.xxx

I was looking at an Oregon fire map and I was surprised how many of them seem to be in the western part of the state? I also associated that part of Oregon with lots of rainfall. --72.188.xxx.xxx

Thanks all, we're back home and okay. The smoke is everywhere and still very heavy and thick. They are telling everyone to stay inside and don't go outside and breathe the air. Glad to be home, but now feel trapped inside anyway.

They were able to get the fire to 75 percent contained. From what I've been hearing, the fire marshal has been examining what started so many of these fires. But it looks like arson could have been the cause in many of these fires... --73.25.xx.xxx

Thank you for the update. Glad to here you all are safe. If I remember correctly, it was a group of kids that started the Smokey Mountain fire. They said it was an accident I think. There are a bunch of law suits now because they claim that the area government did not give people ample warning. --73.120.xx.xxx

Many donít understand the fear fire can put into a person until they are in a situation where fire may actually kill them.
