Glad it missed you, but unfortunately the show's not over yet. The smoke has showed up again here in Seattle so there's still plenty of stuff burning out west.

 

We have the mixed blessing of onshore wind and fog.  Good because it is cool and damp. Bad because it keeps aircraft grounded.

Best to take it before it becomes a HOT problem. Not to mention that trees like that can put a big hurting' on a mobile. About 5 years back, during a rather intense storm, half a very large oak came down between two mobiles out front in the park. We were looking at a 16" dia. trunk section. It just fell between the two nicking a car port and the front fender of the car parked there. If it would've hit either home, it would've been curtains. Those two were some of the oldest in the park, something like '69 or '70 era with the old 1x2 wall construction. One of them has since been torn down, but the one with the car port is still there:blush:

Exactly. We're thinking about putting some garden arches over the walkway out to the sidewalk to give perches for the birds and a place to hang our wind chimes.

As unpleasant as it is to look at that burn scar so close to your home, the silver lining is it will be quite a while before it can burn again.  Maybe that can provide some peace of mind.  I hope.

Yep.  Pretty much it burned right to where the Tubbs Fire burned in 2017.  We are at the 6 pointed star in this map.

is there anything left to burn out there ? seems this is a reoccurring nightmare for years now 

 

It got rid of a lot of the underlying fuel,  but there is still plenty.   Grasses will be back next year.
