    90 degrees in El Cajon today – probably hotter in Jamul – I guess common sense is not in the job description of Cal Fire schedulers – oh well….

    Better to do a control burn now and give yourself manuevering room than waiting out till real wild fire strikes and all hell breaks loose around you.

    One has to question the wisdom of the extreme danger warnings we've been receiving over the last 3 days and the relatively low humidity. Is this really the best time to do a controlled burn?
