Oh brother... Playtime might be limited for the foreseeable...

We've got some Internet problems in Southern California with AT&T... Bandwidth and Up and Download capacities appear lower than usual...

No real mystery as to why: The fire season may claim Mount Wilson, a key communications hub for everything Santa Barbara-Tijuana, as one of its first victims in the Station Fire, only about 5% contained with little hope of containing it for TWO MORE WEEKS.

So, things could get hairy for a bit, and I don't want to get in the way of my friend's work or her friends. If I can get on, I'll be on. If not...

Just to let everybody know.

Watched a bit of the news this morning. Some fire official dude said they had about 22% of it contained. (not much better, but it's better than 5!)

Hopefully the cooler weather and high humidity will help.

Good luck and stay safe.

They sound like they've made *some* progress the last two days -- more than they thought they would.

But still, though the weather has appeared to help some -- 8th straight day 100 degrees or more.
