This roof in the foreground is the building that I work in. Road is closed (as is one of the other main roads from here)

This is the small store across the street from where I work

That fire (Railroad Fire) is near work, which is about 15 miles away.

There's actually another fire (South Fork Fire) *between* here and there which is past peak. And then about 4-5 miles away is *another* fire (Empire Fire) closing another road. That one I'm sort of worried about. Helicopter hovering overhead as I type this

I just posted since it's in the news, and whenever there's Yosemite news and I don't post about it, Mr Mackin gets on me.

But here's a map for the curious and the bored

Stay safe.... I was not aware of it. Seems you folks have fire and flood on the continent, makes a damp windy summer seem a mild complaint Smiley

It's sorta an inside admin joke from eons ago, when admins ruled the earth.

I don't need reminding. I know my place.

The smoke is actually pretty thick all the way out here today, and there is record heat all over the West coast.

Guess where we're headed in a week?

Out of the fire, into the frying pan, as the saying goes. At least the first half is not even metaphorical
