I don't know why the banana stops either, that's why I was asking. Apparently someone knows because when I've mentioned it in the past, it began dancing again.
ROTW.net got back on somewhere around 9:15 AM.
I've been on the phone so much w/ concerned friends and week-ender neighbors that I lost track of time.
The cool nite breezes have stopped and the warm valley winds have begun. It will now be more difficult for the fire crews. Hopefully the wind won't be too strong for the air tankers. We aren't "out of the woods,yet" as the saying goes.
We can hear the planes but not actually
them from our home due to the steep-sided narrow canyon. According to "Rim of the World .net" (ROTW), there are 7 airtankers, 2 heli-tankers, 4 type 2 helicopters, 1 type 3 helicopter, 25 crews, 26 engines, 5 dozers, and 3 water tenders involved in stopping this fire.
The smoke makes for difficult breathing and has really affected parts of Yucaipa in addition to us in Forest Falls.
Thankfully we were able to get a good night's rest with the cool air last night.
We'll try to continue updating here, unless we get moved to another topic. We have
sort of wandered away from the original idea.
Thank you for the concerns and prayers,
& Ann K.
We are still planning on being at HeartBar(but maybe without the steaks from Stater's). Since we might not have the chance to go down the mountain first.
