Well, maybe jubilation is overstating it... but a wetting rain did fall on the Horseshoe Fire last night, 0.12" at our house! Lightning started two new fires, one in Pinery Canyon and one in Brushy Canyon, and the Forest Service is flying over the area this morning to assess all three fires. It wasn't known this morning whether the new fires survived the rain.
Today more thunderstorms and lightning are predicted, with the possibility of more ignitions. A drying trend will follow. So we aren't yet out of the woods, but did that rain ever feel and smell and sound wonderful last night!
