Heavy Rainfall May Slow Fires

Tuesday night: What threatened to be a mere drizzle all day long turned into a heavy rainstorm this evening. Happy Campers are relieved to have nearby fires get wet. This precipitation is no doubt going to slow the progress of the Elk Complex Fires, but is not expected to put them out entirely.

Update, Wednesday morning: All those people who left comments here saying they were praying for us … this may be the answer to your prayers! Thanks so much to all who commented on the fire articles and sent us your thoughtful words and best wishes.

When we woke up this morning the ground was soaked. Definitely a good sign.
