    that was deep bro
    I'm going crazy. Our area is still experiencing fires. Stuck inside and going deep.
    You in the north-west, Thirty?  My wife had a hard time hopping from Sacramento to Seattle to get to Alaska due to massive smoke causing delays.  We've had only one big on so far her in the Sierra Foothills (the Detwiler fire, 81,800 acres) but our worst fire season is late August and September.  A new one started in the Yosemite area (1600 acres, 0 % containment).  Things are getting bone dry, shits gonna burn.
    Brian, 
    is the drought still over?
    I'll ride the wave where it takes me......

    Yes and no McG.  the 2016/2017 winter was the wettest winter we've had in several years which of course helped but, as usual, summer is dry here and we have had no significant rain since mid April (again, that's normal).  We need more winters last last winter and that's difficult to predict.  In any case, the impact of drought is still taking its toll here.  I'm still seeing pines, cedars and manzanita (a large tree-like shrub) dying off.  We had to take out a huge manzanita yesterday that had died off quickly this summer and have two cedars, one quite large, that look like they aren't going to make it.  I noticed today that about 1/2 of the deciduous trees in our local Raley's grocery store parking lot died rather quickly just recently.  I don't mean to sound sensationalist or alarmist but I do observe this kind of thing regularly and what I'm seeing causes me much concern.

    I'm in the interior of BC (Kamloops). The region is burning up. Air quality is getting better, but it was at 49 at one point making it one of the top 5 worse palces to breathe on the earth.

    All our parks are closed. There has been no mountain biking this year. My problems are small compared to evacuees though.

  • Thanks, fellas.

    We need rain badly. Not a little spit either... we need a downpour that lasts. The one fire is going to burn until winter no matter how much rain we get.

    There's multiple fires right now, but they are attributing half of them to morons.

    Kellogg is eliminating this artwork from their Corn Pops box because it has been declared racist ....

    They claim the only brown Corn Pop is the janitor.  Folks, the janitor clearly is not a Corn Pop.  It's a person that had his mouth removed by Agent Smith in The Matrix.

    Companies are freaked out that they are going to be under the next “racist” headline.  Overcompensating for political correctness.  Can’t say I blame them in a time where Hobby Lobby is accused of racism for selling cotton and Dove soap for an innocent commercial that was blown out of proportion.
