sunset yesterday evening:

Unfortunately, the blue skies did not last long and a variable wind direction plus fire
penetration east of Summit Road left a smoky haze over the west side of Morgan Hill this

As promised, here are some more picturesque views from last Wednesday's spectacular

After a very cloudy, foggy and smoky start to the day, blue skies have returned and a
southerly wind is pushing the smoke plume northwards towards San Jose.

The Summit Fire is still burning it's way south west and the smoke plume visible from the
Morgan Hill area is slowly moving it's origin southwards. The photo below was taken
around 2pm with the fire apparently flaring closer to the summit ridgeline. Compare it to
the photo on the right which was taken around 7am.

A large wildfire ("Summit Fire") has started this morning in the Santa Cruz Mountains west
of Morgan Hill. Strong overnight winds from the north are continuing and strengthening
which will create a major containment challenge for
CALFIRE. A large smoke plume is
clearly visible from our vantage point in the eastern hills and on our
webcam. Over 500
acres are believed to have burned already.

Last night's sunset was simply spectacular. Oranges, purples and yellows progressing to
a deep red texture covering the entire north of the valley. Here are just a couple of
webcam snapshots. More to follow...

Keep an eye on the weather forecasts and alerts this week. It is going to be HOT!
Temperatures in Morgan Hill could approach 100°F from Wednesday through Friday. Very
low humidity will also mean high fire risk. Don't play with matches!!

Checking site logs today revealed that has just surpassed
1,000,000 (one million) page views since launch in October 2006.

The current page view rate exceeds 3,000 per day so 2008 is on track to be a one million
plus page view year.

Thanks to all our regular visitors. Hope you continue to enjoy the weather and the views!

In the last few days, I have been experimenting with a live streaming webcam service
offered by
Camstreams. You can launch the results from our webcam page (see "live
stream"). The total number of concurrent viewers is limited to fifteen by Camstreams but is
also a function of stream bandwidth. Our present limit is five. For this reason (and others)
the stream will periodically appear to be offline.
Feedback welcome.
