heard from the eastcoasters

Checked in with friends out east. Hoped they were OK despite the fires.

Tiffany said, "The last week [was] stressful, but we are ok! The rain over the weekend was much-needed." Whew!

Dave L replied, "We're ok. We were evacuated on Sunday evening with little notice. We're staying with friends just outside the evac area. The fires destroyed at least 150 homes about 3km from us." Scary.

I hadn't heard from Melody for a few days... But when an ObsComm message came through, I knew she was fine. Later, she reported the "lovely sound" of raindrops on the roof.

Dave C said, "We are quite safe. The fire is on the other side of the municipality... although the wind carried the smoke to us on Sunday evening. Some 18,000 [were evacuated]. About 200 homes are gone or seriously damaged. It is out of control. We need rain."
