Flagstaff Fire Update
I'm getting ready to fly back to the Midwest, so I have been working hard to pack as much as I can in to the back of my truck in case things turn terrible while I'm gone. We are still under a pre-evacuation and there is now active smoldering on the East face of Bear Mountain. The firefighters have dug trenches and cut trees in preparation for a preemptive "back burn" if it starts moving down the face. Some thunderstorms are moving through but mostly just rumbling, threatening lightning and gusting winds instead of bringing much needed rain. Here's hoping these black clouds start dropping their moisture because we really need it.
