To all my NAWCC friends and colleagues along the west coast and other sites that are threatened by the wildfires, I hope you stay safe. I wish you the best of luck.

Does anyone know how the West Coast Clock & Watch Museum is doing and whether it is at risk?

while i am not under immediate threat (i'm in the oakland hills), i've had the sliding glass door to the deck open just enough for the dogs to go in and out and just noticed ash all over the tv and table next to the door. (!)

and then there's this:

kind of nuts, definitely scary. i'm right where the 'oakland firestorm' of '91 destroyed almost 3000 homes. i spoke with a friend who lost his home in that fire and rebuilt. he said he if it happened again he probably wouldn't have the wherewithal to do it all again.

i know it's just stuff, but with everything going on 2020 feels like 'year of the onslaught'. 8-(

keep those good thoughts coming, pls.

here in Western Washington, fires are near but we are safe. We do horse events so our fields are cut short and I have a 2,000gal water truck.
Smoke is keeping us indoors though.
I DID get a Sonoran 4 chime clock from the eastern on line auction site. Nice sound!
No new pocket watches......
