Thursday Morning Update

I'm at my office. It took me 2 1/2 hours to get here, when it normally takes 15 minutes. But I'm here! Highway 38 is still closed, since fire officials have a concern about hot spots. But you can ( and I did) go from Forest Falls UP the mountain north, then east, then northwest to Big Bear Lake, then southwest to Running Springs, and then south into Highland, then southeast to Yucaipa. It normally takes me abut 15-20 minutes to do the same trip via Highway 38, and this morning it took me 2 1/2 hours.

The fire is 80% contained, based on information I got on the news.

If the road is still closed this evening, I'll spend the night with my office manager, since I brought my suitcase and pillow.
