Dollar lake fire is getting large, just to the north of Mt Hood. Lots of smoke around and hot as heck. With thermal low growing on coast, east winds may be very strong and fire heads into Bull Run water shed. That's Portland's drinking water shed and Portland has no filtration system. If fire burns deep into that water shed and when the rains come and they will Portland has no drinking water due to ash coloration. For me here in the village of Dee we could be in a bit of trouble because we always get winds from the west coming off the glaciers. That means fire can run in two directions east and west. But we will be moving into our new house in the next two weeks and out of harms way.

Fish still coming over the dam and moving up the Hood and rivers to the east and north.
