We are fine, back home. They downgraded our evacuation status Friday, and removed it completely yesterday. The weather is cloudy, pretty calm and getting cooler.

The squirrels around Yosemite are different, they have spots on their hindquarters. This was about the best shot I managed of one, and is almost a 100% crop.

Harriet,
I think that "all right" is a bit of and understatement . . .

Great shot --

Scott

Harriet, that must have been some fire! It hasn't been mentioned before, but today the Swedish newspapers reported that "the worst fire ever in California" is now under control. Pheeew...

Here area couple of our squirrels that live in the oak in our back yard. I am glad to hear that everything turned out OK for you Harriet. I think I will take hurricanes over wildfires and earthquakes.

LOL! When it comes to hurricanes, I'll stay where I am - less than a mile from the San Andreas Fault where we are subject to brush fires.

This fire was certainly scary for us, but it wasn't the largest one in California history. That honor belongs to the fires several years ago in San Diego. That one was far more destructive when it comes to property damage, this one had very few stuctures damaged - mostly barns and other outbuildings. It was amazing to see the published pictures of the fire when it entered Lockwood Valley. When I saw those, I thought our subdivision stood no chance, but the firefighters worked miracles and saved almost everything.

What's even better, it's raining today! Not a hard rain that would cause mudslides, but a gentle, soaking rain.

The black squirrels are different than anything around here. I've seen a black squirrel that has a white tail andis supposed to liveonly in the area around the north rim of the Grand Canyon. Someday I hope toget back there with a good camera.

Looks a lot like our common grey squirrel in Florida.
