This morning's news is reporting that our canyon fire (as they're calling it) is now 40 percent contained with 13,500 acres burned.
Here you can see the helicopter using the sump that's about a 1/4 mile below our house. Thank goodness for the 21 inches of rain we had last winter.
We counted 7 choppers yesterday but couldn't see the water bombers because they're out on the backside of our mountains.
Some of the distant canyons are still smoldering so the firefighters are continuing to drop water on the hotspots.
The worst is now over and once the back road to the desert is reopened, we'll go up and get some pictures.
Thank you all for your prayers and concerns.
