I wish I could send you some rain. It's so bad now that I can't even see the opposite hill. I'm not complaining. I spent ages yesterday looking at the conditions in Texas. But of the 2 ..... fire or flood ..... I think fire is the worst. I hope they manage to get a bit of control over it but it seems that the fires must be merging into each other.
Thanks for the kind words, MD. Between the long hot summer here in the west and the flooding for those poor folks in Texas, it's been a challenging season. But we'll keep on keeping on!! PS Could ya send us some of the rain you're getting today? : )
Stargzr .... when I lived in France we experienced several forest fires but nothing as bad as this ..... and I found that frightening. We lived right on the sea front so I always convinced myself that if the worst happened ... I'd be safe in the water ..... but you've still got to breathe. Horrible for you.
Hi MD, yeah, it's pretty severe. We're driving around with lights on midday because of smoke, and breathing the air i "extremely unhealthy." Don't know what the alternative is.......not breathing?
The thread here might add a little info.
Stargzr ...... I didn't know it was so bad.
CA and OR pretty much on fire, smoke filled skies and extreme temperatures (triple digits in places.) But of course, global warming is just "fake news"!
That was a good one, Deacon.
Deacon ....... brilliant!!! LOL
There was an altercation here over a lousy fish.
Hopefully Humpty Dumpty doesn't fall into the lake.
Let's get my Accles and Pollock. :D

Now for the most part, the drought in California is over, except in a few small areas.
Deacon .... last year .... or the year before ..... there was a fire in the background and I remember thinking the water looked too shallow to be of any use for fire-fighting. You could see large dry areas at the left of the cam .... no water whatsoever.
I remember a few years ago, this lake was drying up.
Thanks Rain Shadow ... very clear. I hope they don't have another fire this year.
