Here I am near the spot where the brush fire started which burned over 1,500 acres and was still burning in some areas when I shot this. The roads were all open this time and I had access to talk to a D9 bulldozer operator who had been cutting firebreaks the past 18 hours and some firefighters watching for flare ups of the fire on the perimeter. With unexploded ordnance in the area from WWII most personnel stayed out of the fire area. This spot is also downwind from a egg farm that has lots of chickens, you can imagine the scent.
Later at the paper Renata and Andrea tried to coax me into going to dinner. They almost had me but since I had such a late lunch I didn’t feel like eating again.
