Cindi flew to San Francisco early this morning for client meetings. She texted me late last night letting me know the Cold Springs wildfire could move in her direction if the winds shift. If that happens, I’m to meet one of her employees at her house in order to help him crate and load sixteen paintings into one of her trucks so they can be safely stored at her warehouse. If there’s room in the truck, I get to decide what other pieces of art and furniture can be saved. Her art collection has some pricey pieces by locally well-known artists and has taken years to build. Cindi doesn’t care about anything else in her house.
There’s really no way to save the house if the fire come through the canyon. You have to pray the fire gets under control or moves in another direction.
The Cold Springs fire has destroyed eight homes and burned 528 acres. It’s only 25 percent contained. However, crews are making progress in getting the fire under control. I’m hoping I don’t have to do the art evacuation.
