Many of my friends in the area are either "bugged out" or told to get ready to run.

When someone tells you to buy the same rig they own, listen, they might be right. When they tell you to buy a different rig then they own, really pay attention, they probably know something you don't.

We just got evacuated out of Winthrop about 3 hours ago. Hundreds of rv's and cars heading south on Hwy 153 since Hwy 20 was closed. Headed back to Chelan, Luckily, it wasn't as smoky as it was a couple of days ago.

There are fires at both ends. One closure is a the west end, Newhalem. That's apparently a small fire, but close to the highway. Inciweb is calling that the Goodell fire. It directly impacts North Cascades campgrounds and trails.

The other is in the east, with evacuations around Winthrop and Twisp. That's where the deaths occurred. That's a fast moving fire with wind in grass, brush and sparse forest. I don't even see a name for that yet on Inciweb.

Tragic year, and we're still early in the season.

Edit: Looking East across Similk Bay from my house in Anacortes just now, it looks like smoke coming from the Cascades blowing from the ESE toward us.
