Fretful winds all night, kicked up hard just before dawn. Woke to the scent of smoke. Already six people at the bluff, watching the winking lights of fire trucks in Corral Canyon. A few acres burning way at the top of the road. No flames visible yet, not from the Cove, anyway.
The firefighters were ready for it, had been camped out in the hills ever since the first wind warnings on Wednesday. And now we wait. See what the weather does, where the fire moves, how long this round of wind lasts.
