@tinycoconut, Monday, August 31:
4:19 a.m.: Never a dull moment in this fire...Baroy called about half an hour ago. We got an evac order. Cops said not a huge rush, but...
4:20 a.m.: Then minutes later, call comes in that evac order lifted but ONLY for houses north of us. Which is odd, since THEY ARE CLOSER TO THE FIRE! [Edited to add: The initial call came in at around 2 a.m., I talked to Baroy at 3:45 when he called my cell, the cancellation call came in at 4:15 a.m.]
4:21 a.m.: Baroy is outside having packed the car to find out what's going on. I'm waiting for call back and looking for info online. LATimes says...
4:26 a.m.: AND I QUOTE: "Eastern flank of Station fire still active, calmer elsewhere." This at 11 p.m. Uh, thanks LAT. [Edited to add: We're part of the western flank.]
4:40 a.m.: Call back. Evac canceled for ppl south of a XX street. We're two block south, so we're OK now. Baroy's going to try to get some sleep.
4:41 a.m.: I can't imagine sleeping now, but...I probably should try. After I blog. ;-)
