Apparently the evacuation warning has been lifted for Altadena. Hooray! We can sleep easy tonight. (And unpack the suitcases in the morning…)
View from the house: Smoke coming out of the ridge on Mount Wilson slightly West of the communication towers and the Mount Wilson observatory.
Doomscrolling takes on a whole new meaning when you’re following the #BobcatFire hastag and your house is 3 miles from the front lines.
The wind has shifted and the smoke in the atmosphere isn’t as suffocating as it has been until this morning. I still can’t see the Bobcat fire from the house by looking up at the mountain, but it’s apparently very close to Mt. Wilson and the closest part of the fireline is about 3 miles from the house. Things generally aren’t looking good. I suspect we may see flames before the evening is out.
