COW FIRE UPDATE: Cal Fire says the #Cowfire is at 761 acres with 50% containment. One firefighter injury so far and two structures have been destroyed.
This is what summers are like up here. Most of the fires will be put out – might take a few days. 30 minutes ago another fire was reported in Happy Valley. I don\’t know any details yet. It\’s far enough away for us not to worry about our personal safety but I know people who live there, and you just get concerned for your community.
Last year I think we got up to 115 – the year before that I remember snapping a photo – at 117 or 118. So I will live through it. I\’m just not going to stress out about it. I\’m much better at dealing with it as it happens. I\’m not even going to think about if my AC fails or they turn off the electricity – which they shouldn\’t because I don\’t have PGE but you never know. If it is ordered by the state then it could happen. Once again, I will just have to deal with it. If push comes to shove, and I lose my electricity, I will fill the bathtub up with cold water and sit in it.
This morning, the husband went to his jury duty. After about 2 hours, they sent him home. He\’s good for a year.
Tomorrow I go in for my periodontal cleaning. Next week for the other side of my mouth. Fun! I\’m hoping I will lose some of my stubborn covid-weight gain from last year. I did a lot of baking last year… I heard I may have a hard time eating for a couple of days. We\’ll see.
