The Fires Down In California

July 2, 2008 at 11:17 pm 2 comments

They’re bad enough to form a near-fog by late afternoon here, in the Rogue Valley (remember there are actually some mountains between).  Here is a report from on-scene.  That weapon (a chain-fed grenade launcher) absolutely couldn’t be the one that had the nasty habit of blowing up on the people operating it, I’m sure.  I couldn’t have been seeing reports about it.  For anyone wanting to know more detailed reports of conditions to contact numbers, this page should serve.

 

Hopefully the flames won’t get up this way.  This may sound like sheer self-centredness, but this is a yearly danger we live with.  No one knows what the changed weather patterns mean in terms of that.  The weather conditions in this little valley are actually unique on the West Coast, so conditions elsewhere on the West Coast mean precisely nothing regarding the Rogue Valley.

    I’ll be praying the fires stay away from your area. I have a post on the fires as well.

    Thank you. The skies are clear here…just as the temperatures rise again to near 100. It should basically stay that way for 2 months, although with the drastic climate change we’ve already experienced (perhaps temporary) that’s merely a guess. So we’re in our season of vulnerability, in any case…
