Still Fire

This morning I looked through the smoke and saw the sunspots on the sun. Then I got the binoculars and looked again. That probably wasn't the smartest thing to do, but it's probably healthier than breathing right now.

There's so much smoke in the air that I can't really see the hills down the road -- and I like watching those hills because I suspect that if two of the three fires join, they will do so near those hills.

To the east, the closest branch of the Cedar fire got stopped at Dehensa Road after it burned all along La Cresta Road. Map.

The current worry is that the Otay fire (also called the Mine fire and Dulzura fire) will come up and meet the Cedar fire somewhere Jamul-ish, if the Cedar fire breaks south.

We have friends in Alpine (east-ish past this map) who were told to be ready to evacuate, but with fire to the west and fire to the east they don't really have a good way out.

Casablanca for me too....

"You must remember this, a kiss is still a
kiss". Your romance is Casablanca. A
classic story of love in trying times, chock
full of both cynicism and hope. You obviously
believe in true love, but you're also
constantly aware of practicality and societal
expectations. That's not always fun, but at
least it's realistic. Try not to let the Nazis
get you down too much.
