It’s Looking Like a Long Summer to Come
Seeing as how we’re already getting serious forest fires:
2 Dead in Jefferson County Fire: More Evacuations Possible.
The fire is about 7 miles southeast of my house, which is reasonably safe depending on winds. On the other hand, it’s only a couple miles west of the main Lockheed Martin plant here – where my office now is. And the new outbreak mentioned in the article was visible from the gate as I was driving in at lunchtime. Stinks like a bad wood stove in the whole office building.
This doesn’t bode well for this summer, unless we get a whole lot of late-season precipitation this spring.
