The house still stands. They let us in to check on the animals. Without the dogs there 4 of the chickens and 1 of the ducks have been killed, but the sheep and pig are doing well. We hauled fresh wate

Test. React with snow.

Give me a snowflake reaction if you enjoy waking up to new snow falling on top of old snow (Which is actually on top of other snow).    Snow.

The smoke seems like it’s rolling back in though the campfire smell right now isn’t as bad as it was last night. Base on the HRRR resolution, look like it could be pretty bad tomorrow morning.

Yeah I can see the smoke moving back in...can also see Bonney lake fire to the east.

Where are you now Andrew. Any updates?

I am in Eugene at my in laws. Nothing really new. Probably won’t know anything for sure  for days, but it’s not looking good. I’m trying to mentally prepare for the devastation and rebuild. Heartbroken for the animals we didn’t have time to take. Glad we were able to bring a lot of them. Rabbits, ducks, and dogs going down the freeway today. We must have made quite a sight.

Sorry this has happened man. Did the fire really make it that far NW? Just insane.

I had a feeling the Beachie Fire would explode with this wind event, but I never imagined it would threaten your place. Probably one of the biggest fires west of the Cascades in oregon since the early 1900s.

Hope you are well.

Thank you. Yeah. It’s ridge running right now but it is very close I our area if it hasn’t made it there yet. Its such a monster, I don’t know how they can stop it. I was worried, but never thought it would come from that far away.

Count me in on the wishes for you. One sister's house was spared in Mill City, as well as my parent's. My other sister's place near Gates was reduced to rubble.

My parents spent the night with me in Salem, returned to Mill City this afternoon but are heading back right now as there has been renewed activity up there that freaked out my mother

My mother in law just sent me a link to this page that has been set up for the Stayton/Marion County Fire.  She lived in Corvallis for 30-ish years, so she feels a very strong connection to the area, and Silver Falls SP was one of her favorite places to go...  She had several friends impacted by the Bozeman fire Saturday and now has several friends impacted by the events in the Willamette Valley/Cascade foothills.

Hopefully the link works

This is all surreal and heartbreaking. I know you, like I, have many fond memories of time spent in the Little North Santiam drainage. That was an Oregon treasure and to lose that just three years after much of the Gorge succumbed to wildfire is a hard pill to swallow. 

Not to mention the loss of homes and the huge blow to small towns in the area. Got to wonder how Jawbone Flats is doing.

Really hope your home survives this. It sounds like there is still hope.

Just got to my folks place in Bonney Lake. Power has been out for 24 hours. Fire is a mile away according to the neighbors, it’s been creeping over. Trying to take care of the house and animals while they’re out. All of this is a bit surreal.

Wow. Has to be incredibly scary. Really hope they get it under control.

It's amazing how many people on this forum alone are being affected by this event. Really a tragedy. Worse than I ever imagined it would be, and I was picturing it being pretty bad.

I have a buddy that lives right above Blue River. He hasn't been up for communicating much, and I don't blame him. I don't even know if he knows whether or not his place burned. He just replied to me that he knows a lot of people that have died in the fire. Fukking helll.

Some history with a similar event in 1902... looks like Seattle and Portland had conditions similar to what Salem and Eugene had today.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yacolt_Burn

The Yacolt Burn (also known as the Yacolt Fire, the Yacolt Blaze, the Yacolt-Cispus Burn, or the Columbia Fire of 1902) was the result of many weather factors as well as careless humans. The summer of 1902 had been drier than normal and early September winds blowing from west to east

The fire dropped one-half inch of ash in Portland, Oregon. The smoke was so thick that street lights glowed at noon in Seattle 160 miles (258 km) away and ships on the Columbia River were forced to navigate only by compass.[7] Yacolt, Washington was approached by the inferno close enough to blister paint on the town's 15 buildings, but the wind changed, causing the fire to veer north toward the Lewis River, where it burned itself out. At this point an estimated total of 500,000 acres of forest burned in the fire.[8]

Looks like another night of anticipating waking up to see what beloved places have been lost and who I might know who has had their life and/or property threatened.

Never occurred to me this kind of hellish terror was possible to this extent west of the cascades. I was hopeful that we might get away with an unremarkable and mild summer after the repeated droughts and brutal summers in recent years including the gorge blaze in 2017 but it feels like this is just the new norm.

So very sorry for Andrew and others who have been adversely affected by this terrible event. Hoping the winds will stay down tonight and we get some half decent trough to shut this all down for good.

Winds have been gusting to 35-40+ all day at HIO but now it is finally really backing off. Can't hear it howling anymore or forcing sounds from the house, 20-25 mph gusts now. 

Hopefully Andrew's place escapes this with a little luck.
