Murphy Dome Diaries

A journalist observes life in the far north.

Beautiful day, which means the fire will pick up

Rains quelled the fire, but today it’s clear and windy so it will undoubtedly perk up.

They don’t yet have the blaze surrounded. That should take a week. The fire response team is sending regular e-mail updates.

It’s clear enough to fly but I don’t hear any aircraft fighting the fire.

My neighborhood is in the bottom right corner of this map.

People seem to be going about their normal business and we’re no different.

I am working the UAF Alumni hamburger booth at the fair today. I better go. Lucky is eating popcorn out of the trash can.
