Northern California Fires . . .Tile Heritage Foundation Library, Archives and Collections are SAFE! It has been a harrowing 10+ days. Most mandatory and advisory evacuations have been lifted. We feel very fortunate that the winds have stayed calm since around October 9th – allowing the ‘First Responders’ on the ground and in the air to have a broader opportunity to manage all the wildfires. It is emotionally and physically draining to be vigilant for long periods of time.

We are also HAPPY to announce that since 5pm yesterday, Thursday 19th, our whole area received some much appreciated rain… it was light but steady for a few hours last evening, dampening down the very dry landscape of the northern counties – this added a huge assist to managing the still burning fires in our area. We are very grateful to everyone working to keep us safe. The fires are not yet extinguished but the % under control has grown significantly.

Winds are still light - an additional blessing … we will sleep more soundly this weekend here in the north counties… we also know that it is increasingly dry and windy in Southern California – a high alert remains in place in the south.

Thank you for all of your connection and support … these have been very wild times this past 10 days.

Sheila & Joe
