And then...

The smoke cleared. Well, mostly. There have been no large plumes for a couple of days leaving just a faint, almost not-there, blanket draped over the forest.

Locally this means that sometimes it's smoky, sometimes not. It's certainly quieter as the helicopters have fallen silent.

The guest season is to reopen on August 3rd. Here is a page of useful information about the conditions that you can expect if you visit.

David Zimmerman has finished his account of the fire and it's posted here.

Thanks so much for posting. I'm not ready to give up my addiction to knowing what's happening where you are...

In fact, why not just keep going? Daily life at Jamesburg. Road reports. Snow on top of the ridge in the winter. Updates on the chickens (do you still have chickens?)

(... oh surely not. But I did once in like about 1972 try to herd the Jamesburg chickens up the ramp into the chicken house. They wouldn't go.)

Yes, please keep writing. I, like mb would enjoy continuing to know of your life and activities, (even if there are no chickens), particularly the responses of the guests to the changed landscape.

typo alert: I meant 1982.
