Sunday night in Wine Country was divine. Russ and I had spent the day putzing around the house and decided to have dinner out at Boon Fly just near the Napa/Sonoma County line. I was sporting my J.Jill quilted jacket (a gift from the company) as the evening had a chill to it. I felt cozy and warm. Little did I know that this jacket was going to be my security blanket for the rest of the week.
I’d worked on a blog post Sunday afternoon that was almost ready to go for Monday. I decided I’d finish it Monday morning before leaving for an out-of-town client appointment that would take me away for two days.
But when I got up early on Monday morning, there was no power, the house smelled smoky, and when I opened the door the smell of smoke was ten times worse. I had no idea what was going on and even now, these many days in, things keep changing all the time. State and local officials have given us a guarantee: things will get worse before they’ll get better.
