A little update for y’all on what’s happening in our neck of the woods. Our home in Chico is safe, but the air quality is horrid. A rating of 300 is considered “Hazardous” and it’s 350 where I work. Sadly, some of my colleagues have had to evacuate their homes. Stressful, scary time for a lot of people.
Fun fact: the volunteer nurse who is quoted in the article above, Jeannine Olson, is a good friend of the family. I helped edit some of her grad school papers. We’re tight.
