SMOKE

A few days ago we were having smoke that had traveled all of the way from Arizona. That fire came under control and the smoke ceased.

This morning early, before daylight, the wind shifted and we started getting smoke from the Los Alamos New Mexico fire.

Officials at the fire area had put in place a mandatory evacuation order and by mid morning we began receiving refugees from the evacuation area, here in the campground.

Most had grabbed important papers, medications, pets and fled the area in their camper.

The great American “bug out” or “bail out”, kit or bag, is often times the family RV !

Our extra phone line with internet dsl has been busy helping refugees connect with family members and make necessary arrangements.

It looks like our normally busy fourth of July weekend will be extended by a forest fire, that’s over a hundred miles away !

Hi Larry and Betty,
I believe this is the fire that jumped the boarder from AZ. We had lots of folks down here that had to leave their area. Glad you all can help out.
