Sonoma update

A neighbor called my daughter. Home still ok but Fire Dept has bull dozed a Fire Wall around the house. Good. They have no idea when they can return home because fires still burning and winds will decide the fate of the fires. High winds are supposed to come up.

Here is hoping your loved ones and their home is safe. I think the death toll is up to 21.

A political question: does FEMA cover all disasters? Including fire? The FEMA guy was really snarky about the mayor of PR.

Here's a website with lots of info/resources for people in Sonoma (from a friend of mine in Napa who wishes Napa had something similar)

I suspect that your family has already found this, but just in case here's the URL.

Glad everyone is safe ! Wow...
I hope that their next step after initial recovery is to implement fire safe landscaping. Of course fire is the natural way the dry lands renew themselves....

Thanks for the update. My thoughts are with them and you.

Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

I wonder if folks out there use roof mounted sprinkler systems. They can be extremely effective.
