It's cool and still here this morning which is good news. The fire hasn't moved much closer to either Tassajara or Jamesburg overnight. The morning incident report on Inciweb reports, 'Isolated pockets of surface fire with occasional single tree torching and moderated fire behavior due to higher relative humidity.'
We've used a donation to buy better breathing masks for the resident firecrew.
A crew from NBC TV news followed our car over the hill so if you're close to a TV tonight...
Several fire trucks went up the road with flags fluttering as a sign that there's a holiday out there. We hope you however you choose to celebrate your independence that it's safe and heartening. We're planning some cookies here.
Abott Steve Stucky is still in Tassajara.
