  1. This was taken about an hour ago from my phone on gen Jim Moore


  2. Kate,

    The wind was taking it over Carmel and the peninsula- now a drastic direction change has it going past mid valley to the village.


  3. And I hear it has shifted again to send the smoke south. At least it is in mop up now, per one report.


  4. WOW! It smells like Soberanes again. Plus a skunk.Ha!


  5. Kate,

    MCW/NC: ” PHOTOS: Controlled burns in Fort Ord help officials search for munitions. ”


  6. No wind to speak of but there must of been a slight shift as all of a sudden I could smell smoke. After a quick walk about, went to my go-to sites… here and Cal-Fire and CHP. Nothing… thankfully. Must be the Fort Ord burn. All good. Must admit I’ve been a bit gun-shy since last summer.
    Just wanted to say so very glad to hear so little fire news from you BSK ! 🙂


  7. Lord knows I am happy to not be reporting much fire news – now to get through Oct and we can all start breathing again.


  8. Kate,

    NAPA County is your latest wildfire/property lost/ people & businesses displaced! 1500 buildings destroys! #NunsFire over 5000+ acres burned.


  9. And one death, so far, in one of the fires, but just don’t know which one.


  10. Kate,

    You are right. #TubbsFire and plenty more. Whoa…
