We just got notified of a wildfire just starting north of Shasta Lake at Salt Creek. It's 200 acres and growing; this is in addition to the 18,000 acre Lava Fire burning on the NNE side of Mt. Shasta. They are almost ready to shut down Interstate 5 between Mt. Shasta and Weed. The town of Weed has been evacuated already.
Man,...we just can't get any rain out here...it's dry as h_ll and single digit humidity. All we can hope for is rain by Matsutake time! Wish us luck!......

Thanks for that update! Lots of inaccurate info gets tossed around in all the chaos; I don't want to partake in spreading it! Thanks again. Happy Shroomin'............

BTW, say some prayers for the Lake Almanor area; the Dixie Fire is 85,000 acres and headed that way.....
