Wow. Water utility district meeting update about #CZULightningComplex fire. Question 1: Is it safe for chemical absorption through skin? Utility says Waterboard would only allow Do Not Drink-Do Not Use order. We recommended Do Not Use order based on #TubbsFire and #CampFire
Yes, a DNU order should have been issued b/c no one understands if hazardous waste scale water contam. is present. Bathing in hazardous waste level water is NOT acceptable. Why did the Waterboard not allow the utility to issue a Do Not Use order? Utility needs to change to a DNU.
More questions about if people can people wash dishes? - my answer: No.

Ancient Redwood trees and California's oldest state park have been devastated by the recent wildfires. #CZULightningComplex #bigbasinmemories… A tree in the Big Basin Redwoods State Park is seen with fla
The park's headquarters which was built in 1936 from stone and redwood logs burned to the ground. #bigbasinmemories #CZULightningComplex
I found myself along Highway 236, where due to debris on the road, I had to hike all the way into the park, which was a little over 5 miles. Smoke hung in the air, and the sun made it feel like a weird dystopian future. #CZULightningComplex #bigbasinmemories

Too much to let sink in, not just about the hospital results and upcoming surgery, but also about Cindy and @danny_thorpe who just lost their house in the California forest fires, despite it being on the humid side of the Santa Cruz mountains.

If you can help anybody affected by the
#CZULightningComplex, please do. Many families there are going through a rough time for the foreseeable future especially because of the combination of fires and COVID.

If you are in that area: be careful, be safe.

For me it is mixed emotions time.

The chemo did make the cancer operable. Some tumors have shrunken, a few small ones are invisible, probably because of the chemo-induced hepatic steatosis, and no new tumor were found.
