#1 Our former neighbors returned last week to their home and were thankful that everything that they left was fine. At one point during the evacuation each entrance into their neighborhood had a humvee manned by Arizona National Guard troops to keep looters out of the neighborhood.
#2 The fire in the Chirichuca Mts is still burning but things are not as bad.
#3 Our son-in-law Terry returned from a business meeting in Taos, New Mexico and he could see plumes of smoke from the fire threatening Los Alamos, New Mexico. The winds were so strong that he couldn't fly out of Taos to return home. Terry had to take a bus to Albuquerque, New Mexico to catch a flight to Virginia which caused him to return home a day late.
