Nov. 20th, 2018

 * Emergency root canal went well yesterday. Two hours in the chair and the biggest worry was that they weren't going to be able to get me numb enough. Burning through the Novocaine and I can't have the big guns because I'm medicinally sensitive. He was an artist and moved very quickly between shots and got it done! What a huge relief! 

* We are beginning our move into the final countdown before takeoff early Thursday morning. Yep, we're flying while the rest of you (most, hugs Murielle) will be in the kitchen sweating over turkey and potatoes and yam casseroles. Don't forget my fave, pumpkin pie! There is still so much to do to batten down the hatches and make sure we've got everything we need. Yikes.

* My town is in ruins. Paradise is truly gone, fuck the infrastructure. 11,000 houses just gone. Wiped off the map. 

* This brought a much-needed smile - https://www.chicoer.com/2018/11/19/trump-mocked-online-for-telling-california-to-rake-its-forests-like-finland-to-reduce-fire-risk/  He said it, I heard him. We are so very grateful he came and toured this devastation. I think that was Important and it will make a difference. The liberal government here must stand up and accept that forest management is vital as is zoning laws for those who want to live in the woods. Here's an insightful op-ed - https://www.chicoer.com/2018/11/17/editorial-camp-fire-the-tragedy-we-were-all-warned-about/
Harsh, but true.

* The air is still permeated with grief, but there is something new now. It's akin to the roast beast dinner in Whoville, every single human creature is being kind and thoughtful and comforting and it's just heartwrenching to be in town and no one knows who lost what and everyone is just treading with care and compassion. It's amazing.
