Road Closed

Public Works Road Closures listed Glendora Mountain Road closed until further notice. The portable electronic sign flashed the same message as last night. It was closed due to the Morris Fire which consumed 1800 acres of Angeles National Forest. Reports have it at 45% contained.

Smoke blanketed the air of Glendora. Particulate measurements were higher at midnight than during the day. I asked Bill to get his assessment of today's air quality. His monitoring procedure:
To get an accurate, up-to-the-minute, assessment, I just went outside and chewed on some - it isn't as crunchy as it was when you left [at 6am], but it still doesn't taste too good. Also the air is still full of large objects - see picture
