Fire Again!!!
« on: August 30, 2017, 07:04:36 PM »
This roof in the foreground is the building that I work in. Road is closed (as is one of the other main roads from here)

This is the small store across the street from where I work

That fire (Railroad Fire) is near work, which is about 15 miles away.

There's actually another fire (South Fork Fire) *between* here and there which is past peak. And then about 4-5 miles away is *another* fire (Empire Fire) closing another road. That one I'm sort of worried about. Helicopter hovering overhead as I type this

I just posted since it's in the news, and whenever there's Yosemite news and I don't post about it, Mr Mackin gets on me.

But here's a map for the curious and the bored

Stay safe.... I was not aware of it. Seems you folks have fire and flood on the continent, makes a damp windy summer seem a mild complaint :)
... Make sure you live before you die.

It's sorta an inside admin joke from eons ago, when admins ruled the earth.

I don't need reminding. I know my place.

The smoke is actually pretty thick all the way out here today, and there is record heat all over the West coast.

Meanwhile, in Montana

Glacier Park's historic Sperry Chalet burns down

Guess where we're headed in a week?

Out of the fire, into the frying pan, as the saying goes. At least the first half is not even metaphorical
