The internet connection that was put out by the backfires (lit to burn up fuel around Mt Wilson) was back up on Friday afternoon.
As a result of the events of the last week, Mt Wilson is going to be sorely pressed for resources to take care of cleanup and further preparation and mitigation activities. If you are interested in helping out with the process of transitioning back to normal operations, They would welcome your tax-deductible donation in any amount. Donations can be sent to: The Mount Wilson Institute, Fire Recovery Program, P.O. Box 1909, Atlanta, GA 30301-1909.
