OT - Fires in Northern CA

Northern CA is experiencing high winds today and PG&E (Electric Company) has shut off power to many areas in Northern CA to avoid fires. Many cities north of Oroville CA have been evacuated due to a large forest fire. One of the cities evacuated is Paradise CA, which is the home of one of our dearest friends - Jimmy - better known as Underthebridgejim. Let's hope all is well with Jimmy and his family. We can only hope the fire misses his home and belongings.

Good Luck, Jimmy
Hope to hear from you soon.
Dan

18,000 acres and many homes and buildings in Paradise CA have burned. No word from Jimmy. All we can hope is he and his family are safe.

As long as he gets his family and pets out of there everything else can be replaced. Hopefully all will be ok.

I sent Jimmy a note - hopefully he's in a safe place.
My best friend from high school lives in Paradise - they were all
forced to evacuate this morning.

The Camp Fire, that already ravaged Paradise and is headed toward Chico, is uncontained. Very dangerous for the residents and Cal Fire heroes. Let's hope for good news soon.

I imagine we won't hear from him anytime soon. News reports indicate that the entire town of Paradise is destroyed. Fire is moving towards Chico CA at a fast rate.

No good news - it's bad !!!!_

Hey John,
I sent him a note...I haven't heard anything back yet.
Hopeful it missed his place but yes the news stories are depressing - they lost their hospital,
& a lot of other buildings.

Over 2000 structures have been destroyed in Paradise alone. Just reported 5 dead trying to get out. Hopefully Jim and his family will be ok.
