seems it laid down a bit in the night but has taken off again this am......
just based on observation from Pioneertown, the winds have started again up high but have more easterly component now....

you can see San Jacinto peak in the picture above...wondering where that plume will lay down ash today???

i listened to the live feed on radio
evidently the lookout tower is burnt,
they pulled everyone off front line to evacuate the Tram side around 4pm or so...
the live feeds have been amazing!
7500 acres one report has it at...
and there are two distinct fires now...as mentioned .....

Unbearably sad. Tower served the forest for 82 years. Flag flying to the end.
