The bad news first. The Boundary fire is now 3 miles from Chena Hot Springs Resort, which is at the end of the road on which I live. The good news is that the resort is 60 miles away from us!
On KFAR 660 AM they announced that there was a "stand by to evacuate" order for my neighborhood. I got on the phone and talked to two humans at two different fire departments. The first one said, "Yes, there is an order, you should be getting ready to leave, but call this number 356-xxxx for more details." So I called that number and was told there was NOT a stand by to evacuate order. And they were the ones who said that the fire had nearly reached the resort. The man I talked to also said that if the fire starts burning down the Chena Highway (otherwise known as Chena Hot Springs Road, which is the road I live on) then we will have to evacuate most likely. So, he said, it wouldn't hurt to start getting ready, because evacuation could happen, if it is going to, in about 72 hours or so.
The neighborhood telegraph is up and running. We are calling each other and sharing information. Taking care of each other. No matter what happens, I think we are all going to be okay.
The other bad news is that even though we are near to having 24 hours of sunlight, it's getting DARK outside.
I've gotten together a few things just in case, and have stuff already loaded in the truck.
I still don't think we'll have to leave. But we'll see.
