The sunrise this morning revealed clearing skies but the air was still smokey and icky.
My car was a wee bit dirty with ash this morning.
Even though the major smoke plumes were gone there was still a lot of busy emergency crews zooming around with lights and sirens.
The Moonlight plumerias surviving.
It was hot, dry and smokey today.
There was wind debris everywhere but no visible burn areas on the visible surrounding hills. Luckily the fire did not come down over the big hill like it did in 1996.
Here is a map provided by Eric and Smiley from Breaks Selection blog that shows the fire locations. The green arrow is Moonbase. Click for large view as with all Surfy Surfy images.
Nice and calm out at the shop, no wind at all.
Contrary to this crappy photo the shop had very little soot and ash. We are going to avoid starting any new laminations this week, still a lot of floating around in the air.
Back to Surfy Surfy business, your daily surfboard photo stoke.
The beach was nice this evening if you didn’t breathe too deep.

ash in the lams will make the boards collector’s items. Glad to hear everything is OK.

thanks for all the info. This has been one of those classic internet stories as I have been getting a certain portion of information about the fires from surf blogs.
Everyone in my fam is safe and healthy even if a couple are now out of a house.
Thanks for the updates.
