I woke up on Tuesday morning to find that it had rained. Not much, but apparently enough to really help with the fire. It's controlled. The fire-fighting planes are off to help La Gomera.
I went off to work at the observatory much happier for that (and took this photo of clouds in the Caldera on the way down.)
I'm nobody special to be saying it, but many, many thanks to all the people who fought that fire.
And good luck to Gomera.
