The eastern end of the county burned last week. Now the northwestern corner is going.

We just don't have to contend with forest fires in NC with the exception of some of the coastal areas. Every time I see stories of fire, landslide, earthquake, flood, tornado, severe drought, etc. it reminds me why I have no desire to live in places prone to those challenges.

I went through one hurricane in NC where the eye skirted the town I lived in and we received winds from three different directions in a 12 hour period. It tore the electrical meter off the house I was renting. I vowed never again. As soon as they say brace for a hurricane I fill up the car... ;)

Lately our fire season has been March thu October. The up side is that our fire fighters are getting pretty good at what they do.

Please stay safe. I was a fire fighter in college in Kansas; worked too many grass fires. Went through the devastating fires here in Bastrop 4 years ago coming September. The forest it took out is still struggling to recover.

Hope it doesn't get near you at all... scarey stuff.

OK I'll stop complaining about the many acres of swamp the beavers have created on our land. That has to be pretty anxiety inducing.
Don't let the bastards cheer you up.

Ten days later, not getting better. I'm thinking about calling Red Adair.

We're getting hit pretty hard by the fires in CA, but nothing like that. Burning Man could be smoky again.

Fortunately, CO is drought-free for the first time in six years.

We've had a few fires burning on the outskirts of LA for the past couple of weeks nad it's killed the air quality in the whole basin. Sitting in my office I can usually see the mountains near my home - about 35 miles from my desk. The past two weeks I've been lucky to see downtown LA about 20 miles away.
