Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

Robert Frost

Here is the latest progression map of the Twitchell Canyon fire just before the third red flag warning day in a row. I understand it has hit the Interstate at Fish Creek and is rapidly approaching it at Shingle Creek. If you can't read the map Fish Creek is the one with the big blob of red North of the light blue and Shingle Creek is the one that is all dark green just to the left of Fish Creek. They will both be black by morning if the information I am getting is correct.

Here is what the sun looked like from the North corner of our yard after the fire started making it's run today.

Right now they are predicting another red flag warning day for tomorrow with the potential for thunder storms. It's not my call, and I am not involved in any way, but I think we will see them move into the full suppression mode tomorrow. Time will tell but I think everything identified to be burned has now been burned.

Just for the record they closed the Interstate today and I couldn't get in to see what was happening but I think this fire has done everything they wanted it to do and so will put it down. That's my $0.02

I do enjoy the arm chair quarterbacking.

Looney---it is easier and better if you can see the fire---since the closed the Interstate it has been tough to get real information.
