We have a semi sufficient window A/C but I definitely headed to the down town library for a break. It was hotter than Fresno for at least a week. Crazy.
It was interesting to see all the activity from our balcony. We were never in an evacuation zone but could see a lot of what was going on. In these pictures you can see aircrafts preparing to and attacking the fire with slurry, a fire retardant.
In the bottom picture the plane is dropping the red slurry on the perimeter of the fire.
All it took was a change in wind to cover our city in a Fresno like smog.
It was fascinating to see how social media effected the news coverage.
I moved my cooking outside to remove as much heat as possible from our apartment.
When our typical of the season afternoon rain finally came in, it was as if it soothed the city.
Last I heard 348 homes were burned in the fire. Firefighters are continuing to work to have the fire 100% contained. We continue to pray for all involved and those who are continuing to be affected by fires elsewhere.
