    This shows the fire and offers the county Sheriff's twitter account on info. I don't know yet if it's really useful. I'll take a look.

    Update: The twitter says to call 911 if having trouble evacuating.

    Damn! Sierra, be safe!

    If there is no way out, find a low spot on or near your property without fuel (like a rock outcropping, short grass or moss covering), away from your house. Dig a hole if you can. Soak a blanket (plastic tarp would melt.) Throw a box of baking soda in the water if you have it, and cover yourself with the blanket in the trench. God bless you, sister. Survive.

    Very good that Sierra is out of danger now. I used to live in Felton, right there in the affected area of the Santa Cruz mountains, and Hwy 9 is only one of 2 highways through there which are quite far apart, just 2 lanes and very windy in parts, so it's no wonder the traffic has not been moving. Lots of beautiful old trees there and sweet little mountain towns. I sure hope they put the fire out soon.
    update: The fire in the Felton area is a different one than the one that raged through Paradise, but that fast moving fire may still go as far as the Santa Cruz mountains, which is currently under a warning.

    Our neighborhood is gone. We were right on the Butte Creek canyon with a view so pffft. Clothes on our backs, bag of meds, iphone and ipad. We abandoned the car, and then were picked up by two different drivers. Took 4 hours to go 18 miles on the one open road. I’m fine with the house gone but oh I weep for my Martha, who hid, and we could not find her.

    The video of us heading down the mountain to Chico does not want to load. I was able to load it in skype.

    Fire 18,000 acres now. Apparently the entire town is burning. How the fire got from the Pentz side canyon on the east side to the Butte Canyon on the west (Paradise is on a ridge between the teo canyons) is a mystery to me. The video shows where both fires on both sides closed in on Skyway, down to the curb. It got hot there.

    It was SO good to finally drop below the tree line, out of the darkness and into the fresh air.

    Our sweet sweet realtor called us, picked us up, and took us to her parents house. We have a private room, bath, and we’re with the kindest people.

    I am so grateful.

    All our family members, and friends made it out. Just Martha.

    Hello, Everyone. Just got home after a day out to read these updates. Hard to believe. There are regular updates on the page below. The small town of Paradise, where Sierra lives, seems to be almost destroyed. There's a rapidly growing major crisis there, with apocalyptic scenes.
