More Rain, how to evacuate ferrets in a fire, and Sunday extreme worship.
On the other hand, no fear of forest fires started by people from the city while everything is sodden. I have to sweat out every summer, worrying about getting burned out. That's the one thing that could do me in, short of an asteroid or some other exotic and not very likely turn of fate. There have only been two fires that threatened my place in the last 27 years, so the odds are with me. I still keep my ferret carrier near the door though, in case we all have to bail out in a hurry.
The ferrets would like to use my wicker desk trash can as a bug out vehicle, but I think their carrier is a bit more practical.
At least rounding them up won't be a problem. The two old ones sleep in their "snuggy bag" by the feeding station. Two of them sleep in the cabinent under the sink , in an old pair of sweat pants. The other two sleep in my room in the closet. Like me, they are creatures of habit and tend to have the same routine day after day. Ferrets sleep about 16 hours a day so my odds of finding them in bed are good.
So things are quiet in the mountains today.
