PG&E has installed temporary poles for contractors. Before the fire, all our lines were underground. Let the rebuilding begin! #coffeypark #tubbsfire #pacificgasandelectric #rebuiling #turnonthelights

Straw wattles, what they're intended to do is filter sediments so they let fluid through. These fiber rolls are just a basic containment strategy that's part of what they call BMP- Best Management Practice- in erosion control and water protection. You can have hydrological event where there's rain coming down the hillside and you can let water through without fine sediments, fine carbon or also potentially toxic contaminants like heavy metals or hydrocarbons. You can secure those within a burn site so it doesn't enter a creek or a waterway or a drinking water source.

I knew that we needed probably a million feet of it, minimum. And we hadn't sourced it. It wasn't on site. It wasn't clear where we were gonna get it. How much it was gonna cost, and who was going to pay for it. So I just started going out there and I talked to the producer, the supplier. Then we went to the waterboard and got funding for it and just started deploying the logistical mechanisms to get everything out there.
Private sector's been really helpful. Everybody from Doug [Allard] of The Wattle Guys to...I've set up a program with Friedman's Home Improvement: we supply them with free straw wattle and they give [them] to anybody who comes to the store who lives in the burn zone.

To be brutally honest about it, the recovery is gonna be a twenty year recovery because of all the trees we lost. You start to get these waves of real risk of landslides and hillsides just moving and sloughing away because those old trees, those root structures that were real deep keeping everything together are just not there anymore.

I think the biggest task is maintaining that spirit of mutual aid and hope and just knowing that emergency response work doesn't end when the supposed disaster's over. You have to be there for people long term. It's keeping that sense of “we're here for you and we're all here for each other.” Let's keep that spirit.

For many of us fire survivors there are days we feel like we’ve been dragged backwards. That our lives, and everything tangible we’ve worked so hard to achieve for the past 5, 10, 20+ years has simply disappeared and we have been forced to start from scratch. Days like this is when I try to focus on what’s to come, to have faith that we’re being propelled into something larger and greater than before. Sometimes having faith is hard, but sometimes it’s all we have. #harddaysneverlast #wisdomwednesday #havefaith #tubbsfire #bethearrow #propelintogreatness #rfjourney

The second time I went to coffee park the smell was a little better but still so devastating to see the damage from Tubbs fire

Today's mighty oak is just yesterday's nut that held its ground. ~ David Icke

I've always loved oak trees. They're broad crowns and wide girth can make for a majestic silhouette. They are a symbol of endurance, strength and wisdom. All of which this area needs. The loss of property and life was devastating but remember your neighbors are here. Lean on us if you want. The community can help♥️

My client weighed out all her options...whether to rebuild, or sell and start over. She chose to sell, and I am happy to say we received multiple offers and went over list price. #inescrow #tubbsfire #helpingonefamilyatatime #coffeypark #santarosa

We partnered up with @beerbaronsantarosa for a tap takeover during SF Beer Week, to give back to the community. Placing a Sequoia sapling in their taproom, Beer Baron had guests write messages of hope on the tree, which we all planted on a property affected by the Tubbs fire Sunday. #sonomastrong #fogbelt #savetheredwoods #tubbsfire #giveback #communityfirst #craftbeer

Carlton Willis and Victor Oteri

Carlton: He’s 88, and I’m 85. Victor: I’ll be 89 in January if I make it. January 27th, June 27th. Middle initial "A", middle initial "A". [Both]: Green eyes, green eyes. V: We do have a little similarity C: People ask us all the time [both] “are you brothers?” [laughs] V: We’ve been together going on 61 years.

C: We picked Journey's End because first of all, age and location. V: Our age and our health. That's why we sold the ranch and came here. Everything is centrally located. And there's even bus service right out the door. What more could you ask for? C: Because one day, if we live long enough, we won't be able to drive. And so, it would be very convenient for us.

V: Everybody's in limbo. Nobody knows what's going to happen. And they're not telling us anything. Not only that, neither the owner NOR the park management was decent enough to be there at that meeting on Sunday! It was arranged through the city of Santa Rosa, the mayor's office. And they had all these people that's telling us we can't get in, blah, blah, blah. We know we can't get in! But what's the future going to offer everybody? They don't know what's going to happen. Neither one of them had a representative there, neither the owner NOR the management. And that's pretty darn bad. They're dealing with people's lives!
V: Housing is short! And there's no housing, especially for seniors! You know? Because we're older, what'll they do? Just throw us out?
C: Well, we live a very structured life. V: We know what we're going to do today. We know what we're going to do tomorrow. C: We got everything scheduled. And when it’s interrupted, I’M interrupted. And now my whole life has been interrupted! V: And it is for everyone. To see the total devastation and destruction is heartbreaking! It just makes you want to just sit down and cry your heart out.
You don’t know these people but they’re human beings!
