The Rim fire continues to grow, now 225 square miles, 150,000 acres, and is approaching townships. It is inside Yosemite, but the valley floor remains safe. We are still impacted by smoke, but the worst of that is up in Tahoe and as far as Reno. We wait every day, hoping for the delta breeze that clears the sky in the afternoon and gives us, literally, a breathing space.
