Paving appears complete now (unless there's another 'coat',) from the east entrance up the hills both east and west. (The north side of the road will be lowered next.) The entrance driveway is temporarily both entrance and exit while a turn lane is being built into the exit drive.

This was Sunday the 17th, facing East. The fire seems to have been beyond the road on the next ridge. This was not on Spanish Oaks property and appeared to have quite a way to go to reach us.

It turns out the fire was some distance beyond the next ridge, in West Oak Hill where homes were destroyed and many more threatened.

Windy warm low-humidity days have raised fire concerns.

As you know, we have no choice. However, there's a pretty comprehensive story which you may have missed: Here it is. Click here.

Expect east entrance Flagging as they are starting to cut our traffic island back, prior to paving.

It'll be interesting to see if Daniel Porter puts back the Spanish Oaks name in stone, etc., which Discovery took out.
