Hi, all. Yesterday, was a horrible day. The fire burned some serious acres yesterday. But the firefighters also made great progress in the afternoon and overnight. I spent the last two days ordering supplies and equipment for the firefighters. Today, I worked in finance doing timekeeping. I have had 8 hours of sleep since Wednesday. When I drove home tonight the fire looked pretty good. Very few hot spots. Take care everyone and thanks for the support.
