Meet the new year. Same as the old year. On the bright side the truck is already loaded, since we didn't unpack it from yesterday. We're kind of living in perpetual panic mode now. Daughter is stuck on the beach on the south coast. All the roads are closed and they cut off communications last night so we can only monitor that fire's advance and hope. Our fire is throwing embers everywhere as it moves closer. That's what burns down houses. Burnt leaves all over the yard and driveway.
