KTLA was just flying over the El Dorado Fire and I grabbed a screenshot to give you some perspective on where the fire is creeping down the ridge towards Mtn Home Village. With northerly winds and working downslope, it's not moving much. Granted, still too close for comfort! -Ben

Entirely different topic, I have I missed the opening of the annual snow pool?

For comparison, Crestline (nearest official particulate monitor) has recorded a mere 5 days of "Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups". Ozone is a different story...

Mammoth Lakes has had over 10 days of "Hazardous" air quality. It's had an additional 25 days of "Very Unhealthy" and 40 days of "Unhealthy". Basically an entire season of astronomically bad air quality.
