My parents and thousands of their neighbours were evacuated from their houses last night. I think everyone was watching the footage on TV...we were still glued to it at midnight, even though they were showing the same footage over and over. After dark sometime they starting showing footage of serious flames right behind Belcarra Estates, which is the upper edge of my parents' neighbourhood, bordering the Kettle Valley development. I guess that means that one of my favourite riding areas is toast, but it sounds like the houses are ok so far.
