Oregon Fires

Hi all, just wanted to let you know that I have limited access right now. My town in Southern Oregon was one of the small towns that was devastated by the fires (Almeda Fire) last week. I was very fortunate- my pets and I were evacuated just in time and the fire missed my house by a few blocks – but it destroyed thousands of homes and businesses around me and has left my town in ruins. I am heartbroken. The devastation to my community is almost too much to bear, but I have also seen my friends and neighbors come together like never before to help one another, and that gives me hope that we will rebuild and survive.

Anyway, I won’t be able to return home until electricity, water, and internet services are back up and I’m not sure when that will be. So please cut me some slack if it takes a while for your comment to get posted or for tonight’s Season Finale episode to go up. Thanks for understanding.

If you are in the position to help and would like to do so, please consider donating the the Rogue Valley Fire Relief fund, which goes to support the most vulnerable families immediately and over the difficult coming months.

  4. Man. I wouldn’t say I can relate if I couldn’t. We were directly hit by hurricane michael. I think the aftermath was worse than the storm. But, you are right. The community often comes to each other’s aid in the most beautiful ways. I found my best friend through it. She was my neighbor all along. Hang in there. I promise you one day it’s going to be ok.

  9. Oh my goodness Dizzy I am so sorry. I’m so glad to hear that your home and you/your pets are safe, and so terribly sad to hear about everything else 🙁 I live in California, about 30 minutes from the Creek Fire, so although my town hasn’t burned down yet (hopefully not) I can understand this pain, as my community is also burning. This will pass, as things always do. People come together and communities rebuild, as you said you saw. People are strongest and more connected than ever in crisis, do not lose hope because this is when it flourishes and when things get DONE. Hang in there, we are all here for you, you’re not alone. You have an admirer in California who sending you all the love and is right there with you with these fires!!! Stay safe Dizzy and don’t worry about posting, you come first!! <3

  12. Dizzy, I am so sorry to hear this. I lost my home in the Camp Fire in 2018 in Paradise, CA. I hope you and your pets are okay.
