Weather Report.

Oh quit groaning.  If I decide to talk about the weather, you can pretty well bet it will be interesting.  For the last couple of months it’s been interesting.

You see, we have entered Fire Season.  This is when the National Forests out here go up in smoke and all that smoke pools in the valley making it hard to breathe.  I’ve mentioned it a couple of times, but really, seeing is believing.

This is what it looks like when the smoke is a little on the thick side:

A day or two afterward we had a storm roll through.  This picture was taken at three in the afternoon:

It was dark enough we turne all the lights on in the house.

An hour later:

If you look real close to the area between the front of the church and the tree to the right you’ll notice there is a mountain back there.

I’ve decided now and then to simply post a picture so you can see what our weather is like.

  1. It’s fire season here too….a result of too little rain, too much wind, too much heat

    Finally cooled off…we’re getting a taste of fall. Too bad the wind is blowing 50 mph!

  2. My son keeps saying the wind will blow the fires out. He doesn’t seem to understand that forests aren’t like birthday cakes. Wind only makes it burn hotter.

  3. A picture is worth a thousand words! I can’t believe people have to breathe that. We don’t have to contend with forest fires here so I don’t have any experience living with them.
