And I will leave you with this gorgeous shot by SLOStringer.
Tassajara has retardant on the flanks, and from here, it looks like it is laying down. We will know for sure in the morning, but for now, I am signing off.
oh here’s the photo from Joel DeMaria, as promised. BTW, you can listen to scanner feeds on broadcastify. You must join, but it is free. I can’t hear well enough to make use of it, thus far, but I try.
Also, a serious fire on 68. Highway closed in both direction and evacuations taking place. There is a possible third fire, but it could be from the Santa Lucia Preserve Fire (Cachagua and Tassajara) Large plume per reporting party. And finally, the River Fire at 17 and Pine Canyon. Whew. Will take me a while to dig up more details on the two major ones.
“Sunday, Jan 4th – 1.7″ last night and it’s still raining today. Lots of wind at the moment.”
Didnt have any weather watching/recording equipment back then, except a couple plastic rain gauges. I did keep track on my calendar of how much rain I got each day and night, as well as the total to-date for the season. I kept them all, too…I just have to find them!
