Don’t know how much but got a good amount of rain over the Pearch today. Resources have been pulled off the line early
We’ve been getting a good wetting rain down here in Arcata. I can only hope enough is also landing on the fires. Glad to see the rain fall. Also glad I’m not working out in it.
It looks like the blue 2 and copper are moving in panorama view.
Looks like tomorrow might get busier…
Looks like the Blue 2 and Copper Fires are right on the edge of trace rainfall moving up from the SE. They’ve been the two most active fires in the complex past few days, Blue 2 grew something like 800 acres yesterday.
The active flank of Smith River Complex showing on Wild Frontier right now has been messy ever since the rains. The team had a big indirect box drawn when the fire was still actively moving in the end of August and it seems like they have had a hard time getting firing opportunities to wrap up that western edge of the Kelly Fire. I might be wrong on that, anyone with better intel feel free to correct me…
