Thanks for a great new topic and photo.

Prayers for friends and family in that area . . . for everyone really.

A challenging situation for all.



PS -- Sobering photos in this NYT article:

What's happening?

do you think all these severe weather changes and patterns are a result of climate change?

Could we please stay away from political issues, which have recently resulted in many threads being closed?

Thank you.

Wildfires close by

How about I go back on topic...?

First pic: Sunset, end of last week, as seen from the back deck. The winds had died, and the smoke was getting thicker. A day after this, we had no visible sunsets, it's just like the lights go off.

Second pic: Sunrise this morning. You can look directly at the sun.

We've had no rain for months, and everything is coated with a thick layer of dust from the dirt road we live on. Rain was first predicted for Sunday night, then it's gradually been out of reach all week, moving back a day at a time. Now rain is predicted for Friday night, two nights from now. We've had red flag warnings, and hazardous conditions warnings on and off for these last two weeks. Now we're just down to air quality warnings.

Last Friday, the air was pretty clear (driven by our Gorge winds) and I thought I saw fog down in the river ravine that's below us.

It wasn't fog.

It was a wildfire, only about a mile and a half away. The side of a hill went up like a torch. Fortunately, there are three fire stations within a few miles, and it was held to "just" 10 acres. Then a second wildfire started, about a half mile closer. That one was killed immediately, as crews were right nearby.

Yup, can't wait for rain.

Fire in the sky - WY/CO

I can't imagine what all of you in CA/OR/WA are going through as our 100k acre fire has permeated our air quality over the last few weeks.

It has now crossed the WY/CO boarder.
