They are now allowing residents back in to Apple Canyon. A few people have gone ahead to check it, see what the air quality is like etc. We may all be returning today and it is quite possible we will still be holding the Care for your Temple Day. We will post the information as soon as we know.
Unfortunately, although Apple Canyon is now open again, we are a long way from returning home. There are still a lot of fire crews at Yokoji dealing with spot fires. With the change in weather, the fire crews are staying put to protect Yokoji, one of the remaining unburned sections of the canyon.
Care for Your Temple Day is officially canceled, but once we get back in (whenever that may be) we will take all the help we can get in getting the place cleaned up. Thank you for everyone's thoughts and offers of help.
