    The Glass Fire is snaking around the eastern edge of Santa Rosa, jumping roads at will. They might tell us to get out of our house pretty soon... a lot of houses in the Rincon Valley would burn before it got to us. Yellow sky, ash dropping out of the sky like snow. Still, I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. My sons and grandsons are here, my uncle Bob and his wife Magi are here. It doesn’t take long to grow deep roots in the North Bay.

    Well, stay safe. We had a week of rain and most of the fires up in Oregon are out or contained. Will pray for you that you don’t have to evacuate.

    I've been thru a lot of sucky weather-related crap, but consider myself very fortunate to never have had to deal with what you guys are experiencing.

    Please stay safe as you can..... but get the heck outta Dodge if that's the only way to stay safe!

    North of Placerville out in the sticks. They shut the whole town down for a couple days when I was there about three weeks ago.

    It's been calming down in the LA area the last few days. Humidity has been up, even fog on the way to work a few days last week and heavy dew on the car.
    The Santa Ana's are back today, which won't make things easy, but they've done a stellar job at getting Bobcat under control. The few hot spots left in the Mt. Wilson area last night had nowhere to go but to burn back in on itself. They did a great job clearing out the fuel with back fires.

    Supposed to come back up today.
    I had heavy dew on the car this morning. My PWS indicates 97 degrees and peak wind of 3.5mph, but it's sheltered from the E/W wind by buildings, so I'm always reading low.
    Humidity is down 9% to 43, so still not too dry.

    But when did the weather ever follow CBS's schedule LOL
