For those of you that know that I live in Yuba City and have been watching the news, my family and I and most of the animals are in the process of evacuating. Only the bird is staying. This evacuation order literally came out of the blue as if it wasn’t for the danger of the dam failing I do not live in a floodplain even if you consider a 100 year flood (which is why I also don’t have flood insurance). A lot went right for us during this process and I’ll be writing a post about it. In the meantime I think another pot of tea is called for as I go spray paint my phone number on Farley. For those of you that are wondering whether my priorities are still intact, why yes I did grab my Black Canyon shoes and my run bag. Theoretically all I need is to rebuy a bunch of food and I’ll be good to go! I have not shared this plan with the husband yet. Maybe let a night or two of “nation’s dam going to kill us all” pass. (I think it’s the second largest, and it wouldn’t kill us just destroyed a bunch of stuff so yes I’m exaggerating).
I went up for a hike and a picnic on some of the Oraville trails this morning. I got one to upload here but my connection is really slow so the rest are on my facebook page (facebook.com/drmelnewton) There is a video on my Facebook page too.
I’m posting from the mobile app on my phone so excuse any weirdness
