Marv Collins, a retired engineer and friend of RW, shares some pix of interest.
“Paul, you may have heard of the Station Fire in southern California,” he writes. “It burned within 150 feet of our house. This is the same fire that threatened Mount Wilson. The fire is out after we had 2.5 inches of rain a week ago.”
But strong winds this past week brought an ash dust storm. Marv attached three photos.
“The fire may be out but the ash dust from the fire sure continues on a daily basis,” he added.
