    I would take it. Unfortunately we’re still about a month away from our annual late summer rains.

    Good for your son. That’s a hard dangerous job. We’ve had big fires too and when everything was on fire we were surrounded on all sides by them but they were out in the wilderness or on the mountain caused by careless campers or lightning strikes. These are in or just outside “town”. Causes...

    Not so far but three of them in the last two weeks have been within a few miles. That's never happened before either. This has literally never happened here before. Ever. Not even back in the nineties when it seemed like the whole country was on fire...

    I am so tired of the summer fires. There have been three surrounding us and a fourth one started in the middle of the metropolitan area on a ridge that threatened some medical offices. Along with the triple digit temperatures and the wind (today) I am not going outside.

    That was last week. We've dropped back below 100F this week and the air quality has improved. It's just summer arriving though. We hit a point every year at the end of May (if not earlier) when outdoor burning is prohibited. We can thank the cheat grass for that. It is NOT native and...
