I'm not in California, but I have followed the news and my heart goes out to all those whose homes and lands have been damaged or destroyed by all the fires lately. I am especially sorry for the town of Paradise -- an entire town just GONE overnight! All those people have lost not only their own homes but even the spaces that might potentially have been temporary emergency shelters for them -- schools, churches, everything. Anyway, I don't have any money or I would send it to whoever needs it, but I can offer a rent-free camping place for a trailer, tiny home or tents to a family or two (or three) here on our land until you can figure out what you want to do. Problem is, we aren't close to California so you'd have to get here somehow. We're in SW Missouri (near Branson) and we have 75 acres next door to the national forest -- with plenty of private camping space and a good, deep well for water. We may be able to rig electricity, but a trailer or tiny house equipped for solar power would definitely be a plus. Please let us know if we can help anyone in this way.

I am not affected, but I wanted to make sure all Permies know that there are important groups on Facebook that provide emergency evacuations and places to send animals in emergencies like those. Some of them are well-organized with existing databases of resources, training, and connections to law enforcement and fire departments.

Because of those relationships, they can often get someone past roadblocks to feed, water, and sometimes evacuate horses and other animals that owners are unable to get back in to care for or move.
 
You didn't tell me he was so big. Unlike this tiny ad:
Self-Sufficiency in MO -- 10 acres of Eden, looking for a renter who can utilize and appreciate it.
