I tried to post this close to two hours ago and Google apparently was having issues at the time, so here it is...
We recieved 1/100th of an inch of rain and it is misting this morning.
The evacuation is lifted for CR 407 to Pine Stump.
The fire is still at 67% contained and a new ground GPS shows that "only" 18,185 acres have been burned.
The Mn tankers were relased from duty yesterday but 3 Black Hawks will be assisting with water drops as needed.
The onsite Weather Wizard told everyone in this morning's meeting that Thursday holds a VERY good chance of rain and the fire fighters should take a bar of soap with them when they head out to the fire!
