We can start breathing again...

Although I don't want to be too premature, it looks like the MMT Observatory has dodged a bullet. Saturday a thunderstorm dropped up to an inch of rain on the Florida Fire, slowing its progress. In addition, the humidity has gone up, which also slows the fire. And by Wednesday it looks like the summer monsoon will finally start, and the rains should put out the fire. Although the fire could still flare up, it appears unlikely, and some fire crews are moving to other fires in the west that are more dangerous.
