    Default Studio Mike..safe?

    I see that wildfires have broken out in Sonoma County and people in Santa Rosa are being evacuated? I hope you're safe, Mike. Let us know.

    Im ok! We live in the Santa Rosa neighborhood known as Fountaingrove (you may have heard of it on the news), and while the fires came within a block or two of our house, it is Unburnt (also First of its Name, Khaleesi of the Dothraki, and Mother of Dragons). Were still in exile (mandatory evacuation, no power, no gas) but really grateful to know that soon well be returning to the house we know and love... so, so many are not.

    Of course you know that when it was time to grab and run, I took my four best guitars, my computer and archive drives.

    They lifted the evacuation order on Saturday. The power was on, but no gas (cooking, heat or hot water). The boil water order was lifted yesterday, and the guys from PG&E will be turning the gas back on any minute (they were in the neighborhood last night). As soon as we have a tank of agua caliente heated up again, life should be normal.

    The city has a lot to recover and a lot to rebuild. I’m speechless.

    Its a relief to hear you and your family are safe, most of all. Hopefully everything else will settle down soon, and the city starts healing. Thanks for keeping us posted, Mike.
