Hey. The fire's not all that new. It is a complex of fires. They were making progress, then another complex of fires nearby started throwing bits (from what I gather) and feeding it in places they had controlled. The South Complex and the Fork Complex are nearest us but not dangerously close. The smoke has even eased today. Hopefully that means they're winning their battles today.
Hi Vivian, Thanks for stopping by my page to look at my speeder video. You're right, we were smart for getting away to the coast this weekend. It was 107 in Veneta, the town we left from and 67 when we arrived in Coos Bay. Also, you're right, I DO need a rest from railroading
