65,474k acres, 0% contained. Still holding the line at hwy50. That fire line is 600' +/- south side of 50. They put in some impressive dozer lines along there, I think on both sides of the road, not sure exactly. Humidity & winds are helping us, but pushing fire to the NE toward Tahoe, but still south of 50.

Along with being stretched thin on resources and manpower due to all the other fires, the soon-to-be fired pos guvner released so many prisoners that the inmate crews are minuscule. They've been a huge factor in wildland firefighting in the past.

/still in purgatory, waiting to jump, hour by hour

You can adjust the scale and projected time forward.

That's a pretty fancy deal there but I'm not familiar with it, therefore I can't decipher it.

Can it predict winds in microclimates considering the various extremes in elevation, terrain, forest density, winds produced by the fire itself, etc?

I'm guessing a local meteorologist, or you, would make good use of it, perhaps 1dunno1

Poodles, you live in such a beautiful forest area that I can’t fathom it ever being destroyed. Such beauty.

I was once told the more beauty a countryside has, the more danger it contains. I guess that is true of the oceans, the forest and the mountains.

That pic you posted above is flat out beautiful. I’d love to see that.

Stay safe and use discretion in your timing.

73,415 Acres/0% containment/south of 50 so far but cool ash falling here

Still packing room to room, round 6? 7? I lost count. Still have some room in the truck. Tonight & tomorrow morning looking if-y. I'd like to think the worst part of this is waiting and then unpacking everything.

90,107 Acres/0% containment.
Fire breached 50 @ Kyburz. Lions, bears, etc fleeing from the east. Our evac exit is westward, that's a good thing. Fire travel/proximity reports are good time-wise.
So still holding.

Somebody evac-ed and set their small livestock loose to run free. The local lions are feeding on piglets at the moment. I'd say 30-pounders or so, by looking at the pics

Yeah I saw it jumped 50 and thought it might on that nullschool wind projection. The good news is I understand there are 1500 working that line, the winds should die down until midweek and nobody wants that crap threatening Tahoe. I’ll be surprised if they don’t bomb the hell out of that small outbreak north of 50. The problem is the terrain, my folks lived in Reno so I’m familiar with the area.

Hoping for the best for you.
