Default The winds have shifted!

Hopefully authorities will be lifting our Level 2 "'Be Set' to evacuate" order sometime today.
Fierce easterly winds have blown a wildfire down the Santiam Canyon to within a few miles or our doorstep.
We've been packed and staged to bug-out for the last 2 days, and nerves are frazzled, but calming down a little now.
The Nat'l Weather service shows the winds, though light, have shifted to the west and are blowing back up the canyon.
It's an eerie feeling to look outside at noon, and see pitch dark with a blood-red sky.
And EVERYTHING here is covered in ash as I type.
I will be two days cleaning up around here, AFTER I put back all the bug-out stuff.

Stay safe out there folks, wildfires are bad.
They're even worse when the state manages forests for the sake of environmentalists instead of the environment.
Restrictive gun laws that leave good people helpless, don't have the power to render bad people harmless.

To believe otherwise is folly. -- Me
