Tonight’s inciweb report indicates the fire grew quite a bit, despite the 1/4 inch of rain, last night. It is now up to 13,410 acres. Also, containment has been downgraded to 80%. In 3 days, we’ve managed to go from 97% contained down to 80%. Chalk — the ever ready fire!! Movement is expected to continue in the Hare, Limekiln, and Gamboa Canyons for the next 72 hours. Most recent (8 pm) update indicates 6.9 miles of line to build. (Huh? Not 7?) Remember for days now, miles of line to build has been n/a.
Driving down the coast late this afternoon, I witnessed an odd phenomena. The coast was shrouded in fog. Out in the ocean, the sparkles showed me a small opening in the fog, from which the sparkles came.
If I can get a decent night photograph, I will post it this evening. If not, reporting will continue tomorrow.
