your video

Just back in.

Back in the house now.

All is well.

We were unbelievably lucky.

The wind was going in the wrong direction to us, so we hardly got any smoke or soot.

And lucky that the gas station didn’t go up.

Have a great holiday and stay safe.

Classes resume on January 6th.

A reminder that there will be no class for beginners or intermediates on Tuesday Jan 7th because I will be in Toronto, lecturing in the Dept of Sociology at York University.
