shoulda got that column on Tuesday in focus...was making its own weather system with a huge Pyrocumulous cloud!

in other news I just sat in on a logistics meeting for this and one of the major goals is to keep it out of the Piedra drainage, East (private) and North (private) and let it burn West into USFS land
I've never boated before, but I have posted a lot on Mountain Buzz!

I've noticed the billowing smoke on my drive home up Florida Road the last three evenings. Reminds me of ten years ago...
