Parkhill Fire, Day 2

7:00 am – Early morning reports put this fire at 1900 acres! correction, officially 1200 acres. Aircraft should start flying it within the hour. A photo by SLOStringer shows the ICP just after being covered with the orange stuff. Lost most of their paper maps. With no cell service out there, they have gone to satellite phones. Here is the morning briefing, photo by CalFire. I wonder if that is smoke or fog? Lots of fog on the coast, and temps MUCH cooler (only 70) with humidity up to almost 20%.

  1. Good sign. They are wearing jackets at the briefing!

  2. LOL, the little inside secrets. I just thought they knew it would be a photo op!
