Today, when we got to the Farmer's Market at about 9.30, we could see fire on the North Shore. It was being taken care of. News reports that it was resolved by about 11.30 AM. At one point flames were clearly visible (looked like a large tree was engulfed) but i didn't get the camera ready in time to get the pics.
The copter was dropping water siphoned from the lake, the plane some form of fire retardant.
Which road would you rather travel:
The first is our trip into OC this AM - & i don't think Duane caught as much traffic as there really was. At times you can't see all that traffic as well as at others. Definitely FasTrak (the toll road) paid for itself. We probably saved 30 - 45 minutes in travel time.
The second pic is the road into Holcomb Valley taken on Saturday was we were out "picture hunting."
Yes, the second is where i'd much rather be! But traveling the first means we can afford to live where the second is only minutes away. :)
I keep meaning to write about the book O Me of Little Faith at my other blog. Frankly it is so well written i'm having a hard time, because what can i say but to recommend that you read it?
So glad they got the fire contained.
