If you don't hear from me for a while it's because I had to leave.

We have the greatest firefighters and police so please don't worry about me.

We'll probably still worry, :unsure: but please be safe!

Still here for now. A lot of my friends a couple of miles from here have already been evacuated, but that's because they live in places that only have one road out. Some of the people in the old folks homes have been evacuated too. We had thunderstorms last night and the rain helped some, but they are still worried about this fire growing again today, plus there are a lot of new fires springing up because of the lightning. There is a new one on Battle Mountain, right behind my shop. I mean NEW - they just now spotted it and are on the way to fight it before it gets too big. The problem is there are so many fires that the firefighters are stretched pretty thin.

I'm going to leave everything packed and ready to go until things cool off in the fall. Long term forecast is for abnormally hot and dry conditions right through September. Having grown up in New England, I'm just not used to this. It's worth it to live here in paradise, but my, what a difference. Here we worry about fires and mountain lions and rattlesnakes. There it was traffic and crazy people and the high crime rate. When you come right down to it, I'd rather take my chances with the fires and the critters.

I'll let you know what happens...

Wow . . . take care, Bartfull. Hope the fire is put out ASAP.

Makes me have to think about what I would take. It wouldn't hurt to actually have that kind of plan . . . you don't usually get a whole lot of time to think about it.

It might seem overly paranoid, but it IS good to have these kinds of plans and go-bags. Especially with non-perishable foods. Have meeting places with family members.

Having a plan for escaping the house in the event of a fire allowed my boyfriend to safely escape the house.... during a fire! And if I'd had a go-bag in my car, I wouldn't have been left without food, underwear, and a toothbrush....

I haven't noticed any disruption in posting so I'm guessing you didn't have to evacuate . . . although, I'm also not the most observant so maybe you haven't posted in a week ;)

Sooooooo? . . . How's it goin'? :huh:

We've got a bit of rain going right now . . . it's lovely . . . you've never seen so many happy people in Target listening to the rain pooring down knowing they would be making mad dashes for their cars. :D

Sorry. I know I promised I'd keep you informed. The Myrtle fire is now 100% contained. All of my friends who had been evacuated are back home. The Falls fire which started a few days ago six miles SOUTH of town is well under control now too. We have had thunderstorms with LOTS of rain almost every night.

I'm still going to keep things packed and by the door because they are predicting hot and dry well into September, but for now the danger has passed.

Supposed to get severe thunderstorms tonight too. I hope it rains like crazy. :)

Always an adventure in the summer isn't it Bart? Practically glued to the news stations waiting to hear about the newest fire, where it is, if you're going to be evacuating this time. I have the most adorable paisley print go bag. So obnoxious that people like us have to actually pack literally all of our food. I mean, we'd have people TRY to feed us at an emergency shelter but that just ain't gonna happen.

Good luck with that rain. Hopefully you'll get plenty of water and not much in the way of electricity. We've been getting hella humidity here and a little drizzle, but only enough to make things muggy and miserable. It's the dessert! It's supposed to be arid and dry, what's with this breathing soup thing? I left that crap back in PA.

Last night it was 52 and today 98. Plus we have lots of smoke from the fire that started Sunday night. The fire is 5 miles down the road and you can see the smoke rising off the mountain. Theres 200 fighters, 3 helicopters and planes. Right now its about 800 acres and supposed to grow to 1200. They think they can get it contained. The river is near so the copters are filling up. Trees fell on the power lines but our power is on. Warning issued to possible evacuation from 18 homes but so far so good.

Hope they get that fire out quick, Purple.

We've got those programmable highway signs around here . . . the ones that usually tell you about accidents up ahead so you can detour around it. They all warn people not to through lit tobacco products out their car windows.

Purple, I know just what you're going through. It's really scary. Just keep your go-bag by the door, load up anything that the heat from the car won't hurt, and pray alot. We've still got to get through August and September yet, and there's no rain in sight. Keep us updated if you can, and good luck!

The fire grew to 2000 acres. No guess now as to when it will be contained. It seems to be moving in the opposite direction of us. I can hear the choppers over head, our tiny dirt airport is down the road from us and they cross above often. The fire closed the state highway due to falling rocks off the mountain and the fire got to the road. We have several routes to take if it comes into our area. No rain in site here either. I have to get out on Friday so I hope the roads will be opened. Our power was off for at least 2 hours, I'm so thankful it's back on!

I'm not sure if you knew about this, but there is a website, inciweb.org, where you can get the latest updates. That is the site one of our firefighters told me to go to. The local newspaper here is useless so that's where I get my info.

    • No gluten allergy because I don't have classic symptoms of celiac
      after you get yourself squared away, these docs need reporting.  out right lying to you...
    • Oat Flour making me sick?
      Hi CeliacMommaX2, 'Yes, you must treat oats like wheat in a situation where gluten free oats cause the same response. I would also not use pots or pans for your daughter, that you have cooked oats in, as there is always a chance that there are traces left in the pans after washing up.  It's better safe than sorry. 
    • In Dire Need Of Help
      Alex the good news is you have found a great site with useful information and warm support! You need to work with your doctor to get a diagnosis but there are plenty here who have had similar experiences: http://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/search/?&q=panic%20attack so it sounds like your on the right lines   Take heart that you have probably found the cause now rather than later.  Follow CyclingLady's excellent advice above and go for celiac screening asap. For tests to work you need to be eating gluten for some time. That is a scary prospect when you've finally experienced some relief but it's for a limited time period, you can get support here along the way and if you choose to you can go gluten-free at the end and get relief whatever the results.  Once you're done testing and off the gluten you will be in a much better position to nail the lifestyle. That may mean some pre-planning, maybe taking a backpack with some gluten-free snacks with you, at least until you find the places you can reliably eat at. There are apps and sites that can help and probably local support groups in NYC as well: https://www.google.co.uk/?ion=1&espv=2#q=new%20york%20gluten%20free%20restaurants With research you'll also get to know what fast food options are viable, what readily available candy bars are ok etc. I can eat Mcdonalds fries for instance, which can come in handy if I'm away from my kitchen or supplies. Most starbucks or equivalents will have at least a gluten-free snack bar. So although a pain in the arse, it's doable and the health payoffs MORE than make up for the hassle.  Good luck! 
    • to biopsy or not?
      I ordered the cookbook the same day you recommended it.  I am SO excited!  I actually cried looking through the book!  I honestly don't believe I am good at all in the kitchen.  I am lucky enough to have a husband who cooks everything when he's home.  The only thing I felt skilled at in the kitchen was baking.  I made all of my kids' birthday cakes for the last 8 years.  I was sad thinking that we wouldn't have anything good for a birthday cake.  I mean, I've tried gluten free cake from a box, but it was just ok.  It wasn't amazing the way a homemade cake can be.  So now I have hope.  Hope that maybe my non-celiac kids will enjoy a birthday cake still.  My daughter (the most-likely-to-be-celiac one) never really ate birthday cake to begin with.   So this summer is her birthday and we will find out if it's good!  Thank you for the recommendation!!!   Janis
    • antibiotic for my 6 year old- could it have gluten?
      It is probably fine.  Very few meds actually have gluten.   shows as gluten-free on this list  http://www.glutenfreedrugs.com/list.htm

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
