Congratulations and well deserved by all parties. Get rid of water blocking the lower levels! Go get that gold!
Actually, I'm not sure how bad the fire danger is up there right now. I'm thinking that it's mostly the lower elevations that are so tinder dry.
At any rate, I can tell you that there are some subtle changes beginning to take place over the Eastern Pacific Ocean in the Jet Stream.
It's possible that rain is only a little more than a week away if you can just manage to make it until then.

Tahoe National Forest is going powerless in two hours along with an estimated 10% of the land mass of California. PG&E implements # 5 black out expected to last through October 28th. High winds expected this afternoon and evening into Sunday and perhaps longer coupled with hot temperatures has residents on edge. For the MINE, no electricity means the water is a rising!
Notice has been given last week to be prepared to evacuate: have a “to go bag”, gas in your vehicle, water and food, including food for Fido and Sylvester.
One safe haven in south west Tahoe is the underground Sixteen to One.
If all exit roads are on fire and fire is near, go underground. Sounds like a hippy battle cry from the late 60’s.
