At the moment, big clouds are forming and weather reports say we are going to have thunderstorms without the rain. This has the potential to be bad. If it produces lightening, chances are another fire could start here or somewhere else. It's 5:25 pm and I can here thunder far off.
This is just a sample of what is going on. Those of us living close to the fire aren't getting much sleep, were afraid to sleep thinking the fire will get out of control and word of evacuation won't come fast enough or not at all.
