Evacuations due to fire in Sun Valley, Ketchum and Hailey

Just heard this news and am hoping the fire can be contained quickly. Also hoping Charley is safe.

thanks, i litterally , just got home from a "glamping" fabulous 5* trip, fabulous, organic food (sustainable, kobe beef, lava lake lamb...sustainalbe pork tenderlion , with idaho cherries), raised cot beds with cushions (can i say..i never wanted to get up..UNTIL..they brought the warm (((HOT)))) towels to your tent) , wonderful, colorful, sensible guides and great fun in the outdoors..to the "boat house", where they dismantle the boats, and get ready for the next trip...that is in 36 hours (with 22 guests)..wow, it seemed like a lifetime of being in your shorts on a rubber boat..( loved it) and tramping thru the woods, and ready for ANOTHER organic meal, snack...

and i come home to think i would have a shower..(never been this dirty , ever) to the road being closed..the cat, sorry maame, but we are "bombing " your hill, outside your house.

yes, evacuated ...humm , we are hunkered down in the house, as we can't get out now...MANDITORY, going to stanley tomorrow for a reunion, if we make ii thru the night...

hummmmm

Sounds like an amazing trip. Do you mind if I ask where you went? Also stay safe and keep us posted. Our friends in Hailey are just outside the evacuation area but she mentioned the rest of the summer symphony hads been canceled as well as the writer's conference which was supposed to start Friday. Ash is falling like a light snow on our side of the range.

Good grief Charley...get going girl!

So glad you posted msbasil...heard the same on the radio as I was headed in to the Farmer's market this morning and was hoping *our* Charley was ok....

When you get back and safe, a trip report on the glamping adventure would be great.

Meanwhile, sending watery thoughts your way...
