I am still fine and in my Yountville home but things are getting scary. Fire is at the crest of the Hill above Mondavi Winery and they have issued an advisory evacuation alert for that area but the Town as of 7:30 am this morning said things are still ok here. The fire is about 1.5 miles away but the firefighters are making a concerted effort to stop it from destroying the Town and Vet's home. I am packed and will be ready to go in 10 minutes if they issue a mandatory evacuation but the $64 question, where???
A reference to the SF Chronicle article was on Nextdoor Yountville and added a touch of needed humor. Here is the article by Jonathan Huffman, In smoke-filled Napa Valley, residents hold their breath over what’s to come, and the photo below is by Lea Suzuki The Chronicle. Hopefully Lea and The Chronicle won't get upset with me using it and if they see this and want me to take it down, please let me know. This sculpture is one of the many pieces the Town rents or has purchased for Art Walk, Yountville. Thanks to all who have wished me well and fingers crossed. cheers cvc
