Okay, long story short:
I woke up this morning, and there was a wildfire some 20 miles east of my house. I drove to work, about 30 miles south-southwest of my house. I just found out (about an hour ago) that the one road in between work and home has been closed due to the same fire.
I've already called home and verified that we're not in the path of the fire (thank God). But after scouring everything I can think of online, I can find no real info. It's the top story on Yahoo! News, and I can find the same article from AP on about a thousand sites.
But none of the sites that should be providing info on the closure are doing so. The Forest Service Fire Incident site hasn't been updated in six days, and (apparently because it's not caused by a crash or construction) the closure isn't mentioned on any of the official sites for various transportation and safety agencies. Even the local news channels only offer streaming media, and I can't view that here on this computer.
So does anyone know of any site where I can get the up-to-the-minute info that the internet supposedly is known for? After calling home, I'm not worried, but it'd be really nice to know if I need to plan to drive a full hour out of the way to get home.
To quote a wise Gungan, "Any hep here'd be hot."
