The winds are calmer this morning and blowing north and west. The fog came in last night, and news this morning was that the fire is 40% contained.
It looks like Reed’s vineyard and home are ok from the maps we’ve seen, but I still have not heard from him.
I’ll call the Woodruffs this morning to see how they are doing. The fire was about 1 1/2 from the vineyard there. A close call and a reminder how dangerous the mountains can be. I worry all the time driving through places like Ben Lomand, or Redwood Estates, just how bad a fire would be in one of the more populated pockets of the Santa Cruz Mountains.
It looks like this one’s impact will be relatively small. The weather cooperated and the area of the fire is very sparsely populated.
