The trends pages have been modified to always deliver the latest charts and hopefully
bypass any server-side caching that has been a problem recently.

In addition, the
nowcast page has been completely re-engineered to use Flash-based
gauges with animation! Take a look. If you spot any bugs... let me know. The charts
should update every 5 minutes but I'm still tweaking. The vertical gauges should only
re-animate when their values change. High and low watermarks indicate high and low
values for the day.

Traffic through Morgan Hill on southbound 101 is still very slow as the rush-hour
approaches. Here's some video of the garbage truck fire not long after it started and
including the first fire fighter intervention. Fire crews and CHP are still on scene and
appear to be preparing to remove the truck. Delays continue.

There appears to be a vegetation fire off of Watsonville Rd somewhere between Santa
Teresa and Uvas. Multiple fire engines are on scene or en-route and parts of Watsonville
Rd are closed at this time. From our distant viewpoint, this fire does not look too severe
but has small pockets of flame spread over a wide area.

The site is experiencing a number of issues which started last Thursday. The most
noticeable of which is stale charts and gauges on the
nowcast and trends pages. This is
believed to be due to server-side caching issues at Yahoo Hosting and they are

deployed by CAL FIRE to contain these incidents.
