First off, for all the many kind offers of somewhere to stay. To get north I would have to come through Paso Robles anyway, and I am just too tired to even think of going further. I really appreciate the offers. I am settled in tonight and tomorrow at an RV park in Paso Robles that Rock Knocker and I have used many times before. He evacuated and went and got his RV and I met him here in my Sprinter. Lady is having a new adventure and she’s just not sure about this motorhome, yet.
The news of the firefighters, the Nacimiento Station saddens me greatly. Two of the firefighter, the one who is critical and the one who is serious I know well. I pray for them tonight, and for the others who lives through the experience with them.
I heard stories and saw neighbors as they came through or we met on the road. Vehicles loaded with pets, possessions, and the pieces of our lives. We all hope to have homes to come home, too. I will write more tomorrow, but tonight I am too drained to think. I teeter tottered between numbness from shock and feeling like I might break down in tears. I was driving. Can’t do that. So maybe tonight I’ll take a few minutes to grieve tor the destruction of the land and the critters I have lived with for 33 years, 26 of them up here.
In the meantime, here is the John Chesnut map. Not everything would load, and he suspects overload of the system. Tomorrow, at a reasonable time…I might get to sleep in.
