Just wanted to link to Gary Valle's information on the Mountain Fire, from 2:54 PM local time Thursday 18 July. You might say "it's 2 days old even when you're posting it" but Valle's post is still the most up-to-date, complete, useful piece of reporting I've seen about the fire. As has been the case for big SoCal forest fires since I've moved here.
Note the thick brow-ridge, the idiotic grin, and the death-grip on the beverage. You can email this handsome devil at email@example.com.
