Fire on the Mountain

OK, so, not such a fan of that song from the Grateful Dead anymore. I was out this morning grabbing a few eggs to put in my incubator, and keeping an eye on Bridget (she has over 105 degree temperature, and probably has pneumonia again - and we now have a thermometer that I will never again use to take my own temperature!)

Anyhow, I saw a fire on the ridge. I went out an hour later, and it was worse. Here is a progression of shots from throughout today. It doesn't seem to be getting better. Good news is there are reservoirs up there, the wind is also blowing west, meaning, away from us. Our pasture is also flooded, so we have that going for us...
