Wong & T Sucking,

Would you two bitches take you're crap someplace else? This is a great thread that provides good usefull information for people. Instead you two shitheads have to chime in and prove that neither of you need dic holes in your underwear.

STOP IT. GROW THE F*#K UP!

And how did I offend you or anyone else on this thread?
I simply posted fire info on an event that effects those of us in the north state, which KHanom welcomed.
What of value have you contributed here?
And who made you the thread tool anyway?

khanom

You have it correct.

Late this morning the winds were really howling in the work maintenance yard here and then suddenly I look up and see the smoke rising from behind half dome.

The fire jumped its contained area from the fanning by the winds and took off.

It looks way more radical in real time here.

They are trying to get a whole lot of people off half dome now as we speak.

Hope they are herding the tourist-hikers at Sunrise High Sierra Camp
out of the death zone? Looks like they are dead center on
the fire track. With spotting it may already be there.

I just rode my bike around Sherlock Rd. and saw a new fire burning above the Burma grade across the Merced. Not sure what is up with that.

You guys up north are really getting hit hard this summer. So far nothing major here in socal. I'm just waiting for something spark up in the San Bernardino Mtns or elsewhere. With all the Bark Beatles killing off the trees, it's only a mater of time.

Best of luck to you folks.

About 11:30 a.m. today, my tour arrived at Glacier Point where we could feel a strong southerly wind blowing and see that the smoke from the Meadow Fire had increased substantially from 2 days previously. At various times with binoculars, we could see flames reaching up from behind the hill in the foreground.

By noon, the fire and smoke had increased substantially.

By the time we reached Ahwahnee Meadow which was being used for a base for helicopter operations, it was 3:20 p.m.
