Last night I think it was the first night Chris and I actually slept. In fact she is napping right now. My niece (Cassandra) and my brother in Law (John) are out right now. It’s nice to be alone.
My family is taking such great care of us. My sister, Beth, is a nurse so obviously with Covid there is no way she can take off work. In fact, she has a 100 mile limit she has to stay within because she is always on call.
Cassandra my niece has a Ph.D. in philosophy was just starting to teach at a university. And lost her job through all of the covid and no school going on. So she moved from Notre Dame back to her parents house. Cassandra is a brilliant student and went school on a Fulbright scholarship. She even studied in Europe. So Beth and John has been a safe harbor for Cassandra as well as us.
Our house should be safe. Canby has been downgraded to a green status, which is be aware evacuation may be necessary. The problem is now the smoke. The fires closest to us are still uncontrolled. There is little wind, but the smoke is the worst in the world right not. Portland, Oregon even made the NY Times front page today. Canby’s smoke is about 100 points higher than Portland.
Chris’s brother in Pennsylvania (east coast of the US), is a firefighter and he told us the smoke from the west coast is effecting their skies. The smoke is high enough it’s not a danger, but he described as if the sun was fogged over.
All is well here. We are just wanting go home and return to a post-fire life. That probably won’t happen for a few days yet though. Beth and John have been our life savers.
I may not be responding to you, but I’m reading all your heart felt comments and feel all your virtual hugs, well wishes, and prayers. You are touching me deeply. I’ve hope I’ve answered some of your questions.
