Angora Fire – 3:30 pm PDT

The winds have not come up all that strong this afternoon – at least yet! The forecast gusts up to 40mph aren’t here. It is blowing 10 – 20 mph I understand.

I hear helicopters flying now, which is good, I guess. Ironically, they cannot fly without some wind to clear the smoke away so they can see.

Compared to this time yesterday we are golden. I can smell smoke, but really do not see any billows from here.

California Governor Schwarzenegger toured town this afternoon. He wondered aloud about the safety of visiting for the Fourth of July holiday. Not what local merchants want to hear! The incident commander Rich Hawkins replied that he thought it would be okay.

I am going to hose down the roof again and wait. All we can do now…
