at 3pm (pst) today behind the neighborhood behind ours.
at 5:15pm (pst) today from my driveway.
The winds are intermittently strong and weak, and the air is very dry. Not a good recipe for squelching fire.
I'm hoping these guys can help.
edit: The fires passed us by, thankfully, and they seem to be at rest, for now. Thank you for your concern and empathy during this time. It's no great tragedy for us to worry about evacuating our home and loosing possessions.. but the stress can ware on one a bit. So, thank you.
