60.2°F It RAINED! Not much but it rained. It helped the Fire containment efforts a bit as the King fire remains a monster.

Hello Friends! Well it’s over.. The upper level Low that was expected to come ashore this afternoon instead pushed off to the south and failed to bring any additional rain.

The good news I have is that we…
