Delta Fire, northern Calif, in 2019. About three miles from us when I took this photo. The lake was a barrier, but embers can be carried that distance. We were under an evacuation warning then, but it did not escalate to an evacuation order. Same situation right now. Fire is from the other direction approx six miles out. Evacuation warning in place, but thus far no evacuation order. We are packed and ready to roll. In a past life I fought enough wildland fires to know to heed an evacuation order. Western forested areas, especially in Calif, are dangerous places. Each year the danger is increasing due to a number of factors that are too lengthy to set forth here.
