Hey fediverse, my sister’s family has lost their home to the Campfire happening in Northern California. I have created a GoFundMe (and will be inadvertently doxxing myself) to help them get back on their feet. If you can, please consider donating to help them, or at least boost this toot.

So my sister finally received confirmation that her house burned down. At least she knows now...

Latest news that I have about the Camp Fire is it’s 20% contained and expected to be 100% contained by the 30th. It’s pushing down on Oroville and the air quality is insanely bad down there. Thankfully, we have clear skies today here in Chico, which I’m sure is nice for the evacuees we are hosting. I’m hoping those conditions don’t change (except the air clearing up in Oroville). Evacuation centers are full in the area and there are centers opening up as far as Sacramento.

Looks like the winds shifted and the fire is moving away from our town. Thank goodness for no middle of the night evacuation orders.

That was not an invitation to start a forest fire near me...

Hey internet! Can you do something about the sun? It’s in my eyes during my commute. Kthxbai!

Why aren’t kids allowed to run on campus? These teachers get really upset telling them to stop.

It’s a wee bit creepy hearing something digging around in the walls.

Hey local instance peeps! I have made changes to the social.chicoca.net registration. Any user can now generate invite links to this instance from the settings page and external people can request invites by emailing community@chicoca.net. This way, people do not have so sign up for Discord to get an invite and the users here have more control to build the community.

I feel so very basic. I’m at a golfing range, listening to top 40 soft rock, and drinking a Coors light. This is incredible....

New cafe opened up in the old Midtown location (Tender Loving Coffee). I’m pretty excited for this place, they serve coffee, beer, wine, and vegan pizza. The four food groups!

I’m at a school site fixing Chromebooks and the admin the office moved a bag aside out of my way. “You don’t need this bag, some kid brought in weed.” *Hey now, let’s not be making assumptions about my needs.*

I’m really appreciating the discourse in the local discord server. It’s borderline political, but everyone is contributing to the conversation in a non-confrontational way and there aren’t any flame wars. This group makes modding quite easy.

Some spoopy pumpkins I've carved for Halloween! Happy Halloween everyone!

At the theater to watch Spirited Away. While we’re waiting for the movie to start, the theater is playing a continuous sound of a crowd of people in a large room. I can’t figure out why, it’s gotta be some psychological reason. Like to help people feel like part of a group or something.
