Wild fires in California's San Francisco Bay Area

While much of the country is seeing cooler temperatures after a sizzling-hot summer, here in California we're in the midst of our wild fire season.

The recent heat wave in the San Francisco Bay Area has been a major concern. Not only has it made for uncomfortably hot days -- 102-degrees in San Jose yesterday, around 89-degrees in temperate San Francisco -- we are always on the alert for wildfires.

Here's a snapshot of the headlines of my online newspaper today at 4:09 PM:

Other local wild fires were reported yesterday and on Sunday, days of extreme heat and dry air. Our wild land vegetation is tinder dry after months of no rain.

While many cities and counties to the south and east of San Francisco are still hot today, the good news is that today the cool-off has begun.

This typically begins in San  Francisco, with fog whisking its way under the golden gate bridge. That's what I saw at 10:00 this morning--a thin wisp of fog sitting on the waters of the bay. The fog has thickened now to a thick, white blanket above the water, obscuring my views of Angel Island, Alcatraz and the Marin Headlands. I'm hearing the delightful sound of fog horns on the bay, although it is sunny here, where it is currently 73 degrees, just about perfect in my view.

And that bodes well for the rest of the bay area, and for the firefighters working so diligently to save homes and keep these fires from spreading.

I'm hopeful that tomorrow's headlines in SFGate will tell us these fires are contained and abating.
