Calistoga Burning

Recommended Posts

I'm on way to provide some emergency supplies to the evacuated Calistoga, Ca.

Firefighters are doing all they can to save the historic little city and all the homes around it.

Winds have shifted to the east, pushing the fire directly at the town...it is looking grim.

 

(also testing some tools in Photoshop, you might notice...).

EDIT 10/12/17 : Just an update on the RW situation...the fires passed north of the main town apparently last night. Active fires are in the area, but worst case didn't happen. 

So much gratitude for CalFire, Local Fire, and responders from out of the area.

 

We also had the Global 747 Supertanker on the job yesterday, and hopefully continuing as the mountains are very hard for crews to get into.

Phew.

Good news for the town, unfortunately fighting these fires is an uphill battle but hopefully the winds will die down and they can get control of it.

 

Nice work on the pics Matt,:thum: careful your beans don't get scorched.^_^

+1 :D

 

I remember being on Corfu when forest fires were bearing down on the resort we were at, I still recall all the live ash falling being blown on the wind that fanned the flames. Lisa was terrified.

 

I can't begin to imagine how horrifying it must be for all the people losing their homes :(
