My neighbors known many people who live in the burn zone - 10 residences burned is horrible. The good news is fog is forming off the coast and bringing up the humidity - always a good thing.
A lot of stumps are going to be smoldering for quite some time. Gotta worry about the poison oak in the air - it releases its toxins into the smoke when burned. Token and I went out last night/early this morning and there was no smell of smoke at all. Skies were still a bit hazy causing the stars to twinkle and the moon had a very slight yellow tinge to it.
