We woke at 1:00 smelling smoke and it wasn’t any better when the sun came up. It seems like everything is burning, with fires in Marin, Sonoma, Santa Rosa and Napa. There were mandatory evacuations just a mile from the Napa beavers and our beloved Rusty Cohn is apparently in a shelter awaiting news. Maybe Robin Ellison too? I read on FB that wildlife photographer Tom Reynolds was also evacuated and I am waiting to hear back on our friends at Safari West. Not to mention all the others we care so much about in harms way.
Here’s hoping the fire crews do magical work and they are assisted by sudden rain.
Still haven’t heard from our Napa friends but Safari West evacuated staff and guests last night. Marie just wrote and thanks to some awesome firefighters they are spared, hurray for our heroes and some lucky animals.
