Was reading about the fire near Redding California, which I think is near Nimble. Does anybody know if he is OK? Getting worried about him....map shows it getting closer to Redding and Anderson.

UPDATE: Found his Facebook page, and according to that he is OK...he was evacuated several days ago. He is out on the coast for a High School reunion. Thank the Lord he is ok.

Hello my fine friends.... yes Nimble is just fine...thank the lord for that....thursday night we lost power and later that night came the mandatory evacuations... I ended up spending the night in my pickup and a few important things I managed to pack. The fire itself had traveled 12 miles down from whiskeytown lake ... thought i was safe with the sacromento river still between me and the flames 1.5 miles away....but the dang fire jumped the river headed directly for me.... raining ashes and smoke and lighting up the sky in RED....I could see the flames... my guess it came within 3/4 of a mile from the senior park I live in....     the smoke was terrible.... so when the sherriff came and demanded evacuation.. I helped some of my neighbors load up ...oh man it was hot.... 100 degrees at 11pm that night  ...then evacuated myself....I found a place to park where I could observe the fire and my trailer park...and stayed cool  with my  AC in my truck....but even though the fire did not reach the park they would not let me back in to grab my teeth    :lol   or my meds    so I decided to drive to the coast and get some cool fresh air and attend my reunion on saturday..  my home would either be there or not when I returned.... nothing I could do about it.   I returned on sunday... attended my class reunion  in the sweatpants and T shirt I had left in.....lol    no suit and tie for this old grumpy codger...   still smokey as hell yet... but have power and AC and Im just fine for the wear.... Salute all   :happy-112:
