Take care and be safe Jerry. I’m with therealSteveN…you can’t be replaced…Protect yourself and your family, OK?The potential material loss might seem insurmountable, but it can be done if it comes to that.

Think most of the fires are due to natural causes. As far as I know, rumors of intentional arson are not widespread, but stupid people do stupid things, and there’s unfortunately enough of them out there.

I’m so sorry you are having to face this. Best of luck. I and others here will be praying for you…and for rain too!

Totally agreed, it would be hard, but the insurance would cover most of it. I’m not one of those people who waits for the last minute either.

- pottz

Yearly ritual here too!!!, but it’s never gotten this close before, and then when you add the fact that an arsonist has been arrested in connection with the Alameda fire, it just starts looking like the darkest side of humanity is surfacing.

I am very aware of the towns you speak of, those poor people!! I really feel for them. Tell your brother level 2 is when it’s time to go, not level 3. Traffic can literally be a killer in these conditions.

Pottz, Weather is cold, air is very damp and it’s breathable now, hardly any smoke in it at all, no wind, things are looking good!

I’m pretty sure we are going to be okay!

We have a friend in McMinnville that we can stay with if it goes south, but it’s looking good right now. I think the fire created the weather that is going to suppress it.

Thank you my friend.

Shoot the looters and put them on public display. That just might convince others that it is not a good idea to commit such a dastardly crime.
I have traveled through Oregon several times, and have considered retiring to the Medford area. But I did retire to NE Oklahoma where it is green all the time. High humidity and a large lake make it a paradise for mosquitos and other critters. We are looking to move to a drier climate as soon as the love of my life retires.

UPDATE 09/13/2020 The weather has taken a very strong turn in our favor, temps are down to 50° F, humidity is 99%, so we have smog, with emphasis on the fog part, no wind to speak of, so the choppers can get in to dump water on the fires. Things are looking up, at least for my small corner of the world.

The climate is changing and some disagree why.

That’s more of a reason to remove the dead trees.

People are moving nearer and into the forest so controlled burns aren’t possible in some areas.
Forest management is the answer.
It’s a lot cheaper that what’s happening now.

Businesses are burning in the big cities trees are burning in the suburbs.

Where to go? Canada?
Hope to hear good news from you soon my Buddy!
