The terse text message from my wife left me confused and anxious. It read simply “Should I evacuate?”
It was 4 PM on Wednesday afternoon and I was headed home early because my Fire Station had received a “Smoke Investigation” call. As a volunteer firefighter in Solano County, the only times I respond from Davis during work hours are on those rare occasions when there was a potential threat to our own road southwest of Winters. A simple smoke investigation call, however, hardly warranted an evacuation of our three horses and Beth would certainly know that.
