Today was beautiful and mostly clear at Tassajara and at Jamesburg, even though we hear that the burn outs are still going on. Most of the day at Jamesburg was spent making contact with evacuated residents to firm up plans for return on Tuesday. Things are happening very fast again as they drop plans and change directions. Thank you to all of them who are responding so readily to the call to return.
A couple more things from the trip to Tassajara yesterday: The front lawn is amazingly green and lush from all the sprinkler watering on the roof of the student eating area and office. There is a new hatching of Canyon Wren babies at the Kaisando. There don't seem to be many blue jays in the valley; they must have flown away. The road is in remarkably good shape - about the same on the Tassajara side of the ridge and better than before the fire on the Jamesburg side because of fire crew grading and watering.
