Now that I am almost awake, having actually slept a few hours almost straight thru:
The heat from the fire did damage the trees in front a lot; I hope they survive. This is the "jungle" a few feet in front of my bedroom window that shades the house and porch, mostly eucalyptus I think, though someone said it might be african sumac? and lantana, with an old raggedy fir(?) tree in the middle of it all. The morning sun makes it easier to see the browning of the previously very green leaves.
Stuff still laying out in the front yard; i guess i am supposed to leave it for them to cleanup cuz it has asbestos on it. This used to be my imac, and a couple of laptops people had given me to frankenstein together into a working one, as well as some ebike parts (throttles, etc) I had been working on fixing--they were all in a box but that doesnt' exist now. Just a puddle of goo.
This used to be the box fan I would run for white noise to help me sleep (along with another plastic-cased one that was over the bed; there's nothing left of that).
My external soundcard; I forget what kind it was but I think a Creative Labs, their old original USB external. I liked it cuz I could plug it into just about any cmoputer and it would be detected and drivers installed, and it had an external volume knob instead of having to find the volume control onscreen somewhere. The other side is not *as* melted, so there is a very tiny chance that the guts still work if i pry the plastics off and solder a new USB connector on there.
Pics of progress yesterday.
View from near the side gate (where they will be putting the dumpster tomorrow) toward the northwest. A friend brought a "pavilion" to give us shade to go into for breaks from moving stuff/etc. I have a small pile of metal bits to save out of the barn shed, between that pavilion and camera pov. some of the things are there to give to those helping me, likesome car ramps and jacks for Tannon. The table to cut wood on is at the west side of the pavilion. lawn chairs under it cuz aany real chairs I had are still inside, unusable, except one computer chair I had in that shed that's now under the pavilion.
Delta Tripper is in the middle of this pic, amost same camera pov spot but facing directly west. Grave to left, pavilion to right. old small shed at rigth middle frame, barn shed is now not visible because it's been moved back and to the left a few feet, so the trees hide it from this pov--used to stick out a little past where left edge of DT is parked. All the boxes in the middle have to be gone thru at a later time to discard stuff; we just dumped it all in them to save time.
POV of just east of trike, twoard the north. Got boxes from coworker, and bought tape to unflat them and seal them as needed, stacked against northwest leg of pavilion. Small salvaged pile is to the lower right. Stuff along the back fence all has to go away. Mostly it is piles of damaged boxes we replaced with new ones. But lots of stuff I just won't have room for in the sheds when i move the house contents out there, so it has to go. It's not worth paying for storage for half a year to keep, as much as I would like to. Could buy new stuff for that money.
(only reason I am even spending all this donated money on the sheds is because I need the permanent storage even if I didn't keep teh stuff in the house, I would collect more project materials that would ahve to go somewhere anyway).
POV from windmill to north-northeast. can see the washers/dryers against the fence, and small pile of boxes at northwest cornerof pavilions to save stuff from. Red shelves piled up there are the ones I have to weld up into shelf units, cuz I don't have the uprights they would normally just snap into. The ones I do have a re a different brand with different spacing/etc.
pov from pavilion west side. Plex and stuff in lower right might get saved if room to stack it against a wall. My crazy sister's old bike on the left will go to recyclers; she never cmae back for it and it is a rusted hulk at thsi point. old burned shelves and a spare rusted up bedrframe and other stuff that i can't use anytime soon is going too, behind the bike. stuff to the right is mostly junk and has to go in the big dumpster the landlord is bringing for the house repair trash.
a small garden implements shed was dropped off by adam, the landlord, for whatever i need it for. it's only about 4x2' so it isn't a lot of help, but can hold what it was meant for at least.
Same POV, towards southwest. mostly gardening stuff leaning against small shed, will go in the plastic one above. boxes to left are unsorted stuff to save and go thru later. lots of trash in it but no time to sort right now.
more later gotta run; tannon is here to help me move the lumber.
