My husband, Russ, and I walked down to the site of Saturday’s fire with a friend who lives on Aselu Court last evening. As the crow flies, the fire was 450 FEET from their home. As the trail walks it was about 20 minutes away. I wanted to see what the fire looked like, what it left behind and just how big this frightening acre was. It’s pretty interesting to me how little I know about “my own back yard”.
It was a hot, sweaty, dripping hike to and from the fire site. Imagine what it’s like for the fire fighters who a wearing their protective wild land turnouts while toting gear. And this is “just a small fire”.
A thousand cheers for fire fighters everywhere, for everything that they do!
Now……be sure to come out on July 2 to the Pancake Breakfast fundraiser in support of our Mi Wuk Sugar Pine Fire Protection District. 8-11 a.m., $10 adults, $3 children 10 and under. Eat in or take out. I hope to see you there.
My husband Russ and I have been full time Mi Wuk residents since 2003 and part time residents since 1987.
Reality says that it's time to move on though and we'll be moving to Boise, Idaho at the end of 2019.
I've been on the MAHA board for 'a long time' and am happy to be there so I can know what's going on in our community.
I've also been on the MWSP Fire Protection District Fire Board since 2016 (or was it 2015?). You can always reach me at email@example.com .
