Go ahead no problem. Maybe tonight there will be another good view the humity is droping below 12% and fuel moisture is at 3% the temp of the fuel is over 112 degs so it is rip for a blow up here. We also have a arson at work again today. They just put out one of his or her fires today. Mark H.

Yes very hot and windy for a while. That is why that fire is blowing up again! We will have that kind of weather for a while now. Fire danger is getting real high around here, now the work will start for the Tender. Mark H.
