7:30 pm – haven’t gotten the evening report, yet, but I am not sure I can wait up for it. Today, I only saw the sun once. It was blood red. The rest of the day was gray and smokey – a depressing kind of day, a day when I realized this may be the new “normal” for California in the summer, unless we do something. If Mother Nature does not end our 5-year drought soon, this is what we have to look forward to. I feel for my grandchildren.
8:30 am – Morning Incident Report (there is a new format as IMT 3 takes over. Also note new fire information number as well as email address.)
7:15 am – Today we start the 5th week of this fire … Yesterday’s firing out operations were a bit nerve-wracking for residents up on Partington Ridge. I can actually see Partington Ridge this am, and no plume, so it looks as if last night went well. They may be burning off any left over pockets, today, but will wait to hear from others closer to the “front” of this battle.
