Here comes the fire

avatar

A massive wildfire is burning toward my town. We have been choking on smoke for weeks, and now they say get ready to evacuate any hour. My wife and I can't drive, our families want nothing to do with us, and we're both disabled. From lockdown to evacuation, overnight. We don't know what we will do if the order is given to leave our home and belongings. Even if we do, where will we go, and how will we get there? And... who will take care of my little indoor medicine patch?

16 weeks from seed. A few weeks to go.

Ended up with 3 lovely Reclining Buddha females.

Plenty of room to fill in...

Getting sticky and smelly - that's a good sign!

If my town isn't burned off the map, you'll soon see how these 3 plants turn out!

Grow in peace.

Is there a smart meter on your house, if so is there a way to de-energize? If you need to evacuate please do so and find a neighbor and save yourselves. Please. Find a way out and don't let authorities stop you from escaping. What happened in California where countless people died because cops stopped them from leaving was tragic.

I think most meters (water, gas, electricity, etc) are "smart" here now. I don't know about de-energizing.
Thanks for your kind concern! We will do what it takes to survive. One thing all the hardships I've been through in recent years has done for us is make us even more resourceful and tough. That said, we're also pretty beat up, and not really at our best right now.
The latest update... the order to evacuate has moved to the edge of town, a couple miles from here. The fire is a few miles further out. With just a light wind it can cover a lot of ground. We woke up with chunks of burned wood and pine needles all over everything today. The heat is letting up a bit, but expected back all week. People around town seem on edge. A lot of people have left already. I see a lot of campers and trucks parked and aimed outwards, ready to go.

That sucks man. Whatever you do, I know you will do what ever it takes to save your family, fuck the belongings, and even the plants. It will hurt, but not for long.

Evacuation information is pretty slim and dismal. It's common sense shit for rich people with vehicles...all it says is get ready to drive away and don't forget about your vulnerable family members. Like wow, that's great. Thanks for the transportation relief for disabled people.

One thing we know about all disabled people is that they have lots of resources and money, and they don't need any help with transportation.

Fuck those plants if need be. Safe safe and out of harm's way.

Heheh, of course. I was kidding about the plants.
We had a burst of rain (with people dancing in the streets and taking videos etc), and the smoke cleared a bit today. Now they're saying it's going back toward 40 oC and dry all week, so fingers crossed.
Double the weed allotment for those fighting the fire on the front lines!
