Here I am. All safe and sound. I did not go to the Angora Fire, which is on the Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit. I work on the Tahoe National Forest. But several of the Tahoe employees went down there to assist the "Basin" as we call them. We also had a small fire on my district which only burned 50 acres. Thank heaven. But it almost burned down one of our fire lookout towers that we just spent 2 years restoring to it's original condition.
Unfortunately, a really good friend, colleague, and an college alumnus of mine lost his house in the Angora (Tahoe) Fire. I was so upset about this on Tuesday that I could hardly eat. He called me on late Tuesday night and it felt so good to hear from him.
Thanks for all your kind thoughts. Take care and many hugs, SC
