Gosh Kate, Lucas, Mike, Keith (Xasuan Today) and so many other good folks who are taking the time to share up-to-date info with others – you have to know what a positive impact you are having on our community!
I awoke at 3:30, nervous about the fire, and was able to go to BigSurKate and pull up the latest maps for today – (thank you Lucas! you are not sleeping either!) – and carefully check out my area.
I was greatly relieved to be able to find out that there is no increased danger in my area and that info is allowing me to go back to sleep to grab some much-needed Z’s.
I was also able to read that there is a cooling trend coming on Thursday – weekend, which should slow things down – and this further relieved my anxiety.
I really really appreciate the time and effort that you all are putting into getting the info to us quickly. I’m sure I’m not the only person up at 4:30 this morning – wondering what the day will be like.
My heartfelt prayers go out to everyone who is affected by this fire – and all the critters too. I am sending out love to all, and sending prayers for protection for our brave and incredible firefighters. God Bless you all.
Thank you so much for this middle of the night update!!! I wish you rest. Please feel my gratitude.
Much more re-assuring map this morning. Can rachett the anxiety down a notch.
Thanks for these! I’m so relieved to see that line bisecting Ventana Double Cone. Who knows if they can stop the fire there, but it’s great to see they’re at least going to try (right? Am I reading it correctly?)
The latest map shows that the Boy Scout camp was overrun, does anyone know if that burned?
Haven’t heard directly. I would be patient. An explanation will come forth when it is known.
For Google Earth users,
