And Now For Some (Fingers Crossed) Good News…

I just drove over to the high school and was able to get a good look at the fire area in the foothills.  There’s no more smoke blanketing the crest of the mountain and the area is grey and scorched now.  It looks like a barbecue pit the day after 4th of July.

I did witness an awesome swoop by a helicopter that dropped a massive wall of water across the hillside.  Wish I could’ve taken a photo but it was either drive the van (yes, my big white van) or get photos of the firefighting.  I made the safer choice.  But here’s a neat shot that a reporter at Noozhawk took…

To my untrained eye it looks out.  But according to the Forest Service’s InciWeb website the fire is 40% contained.  No estimate for a full containment has been made yet.

So keep your fingers still crossed.
