Not Out of the (Burning) Woods Yet

An eerie glow has returned. This morning’s incident update notes that the campgrounds just a couple miles North of us have been advised to get ready to evacuate. And:

Due to wind conditions at higher elevations, ash and smoke can be expected in Fillmore, Santa Paula, Ojai and Ventura throughout today. People in these areas should remain indoors and limit physical activity, keeping doors and windows closed.

Furthermore, The National Weather Service forecasts a possible return of the Santa Ana winds on Thursday–the winds that stoked this blaze up in the first place. That would likely drive the fire further West, right over the top of us. So, we’re still on the alert.
