Can you say 'Evacuation?'
A number of you have contacted me to see if we're alright in light of the situation with the Oroville dam. At the moment, we're okay. We were evacuated yesterday evening and spent the night in our car in the parking lot of a neighboring county's fair grounds. So many people were evacuated that all hotels, motels, etc. were booked solid. Not much sleep to be had sitting in your car....
We learned today that the evacuation order for our town, Yuba City, has been modified to an evacuation advisory. Other surrounding towns are mandatory. I don't know why there's a difference but we're presently back at home - for now.
It's not supposed to start raining again until late Wednesday so we've got a couple days respite. We'll most likely have to leave again. We'll try to be a little better prepared next time.
Many thanks for your emails and texts expressing concern. It just shows the love and camaraderie that exists among the brothers and sisters of the Leaf who populate this forum.
This oldfart and his child bride love you all and thank you for your concern.
