OT: [Sigh] another fire

Post by Ginger in C » Thu, 13 Aug 2009 21:55:53



Last Saturday in the back country of our neighboring county, a fire
started. It is so inaccessible, they have to fight it with water drops
and sending in hotshot fire crews from a long way off. It is burning
80 year old brush, and is simply overwhelming. If you know our state,
it is about 26 miles east of Santa Maria, between Highway 101 and
Highway 5. There is a small town called Cuyama out there. They have
called for mandatory evacuations of 14 livestock ranches. It has
burned close to 15000 acres right now and has very little containment.
So, Sandy in NV, was your skies - they say Las Vegas area is getting
smoke from that distant fire.

Air quality here is compromised, my throat is burning pretty bad this
morning.

They are still searching for a cause.

Oh rats Ginger.  I haven't been paying too much
attention to local news the last few days.  I hope
they are able to get a handle onthe fire soon.
It has been reasonable cool here this year comparably speaking.  That is at
least helpful.
Is the supertanker there?   We can watch it come and go when it is heading
south but not your way.
Stay inside and take it easy.  The whole fire thing
is so very unnerving.
Hugs, Taria

Ginger, I'm only just seeing this, due to a scare with Bisou that
required her to stay at the vet's overnight and me to pace the floor
worrying. :S

I don't see any smoke in our skies, but I will say that the blue we
usually have is not quite as bright as usual -- that could be a result
of the smoke, I think. I hope they get this monster under control soon
and that no one is hurt!

It sure is a scary time when fires start raging. I hope it is soon under
control.

Our forecasters are predicting another very hot and dry summer here in
Victoria Aust - and that we should be prepared for more fires like those we
had in February.  God forbid it.

I, too, wondered about the smoke, Ginger.  However, I KNEW from previous
experience, that somewhere in California someone was having a very bad
day.  So sorry.

Best regards,

This fire has burned about 30+ square miles now. It's hard to believe,
isn't it?

The air quality is wierd. We have foggy stuff along the coast, but the
smoke is also there, so it just lays over you. Burning throat and
headaches.

We headed out to the pass and down the hill this morning and saw on the west
side of the valley a lot of smoke*** in the air from the fire over your
way.  Lots of it.  Really like a bad smoggy day.  I was down in OC all day
and out of it.  Maybe that is why my eyes have been so  bad. I;m sorry it is
so bad there.  I can't remember if you have AC or not.
That helps a bit.

This morning's news tells me the fire is 56+ square miles big. Just
cannot even wrap my mind around something that size!
No, no A/C here at home, basically wouldn't use it if I had it.
We notice in the buildings at work they have the courtrooms ventilated
pretty good, but the hallways and other offices leave a lot to be
desired.

I was headed to dad's for the day in Mission Viejo and we did have/make time
to swing by M&L because I needed some fabric for a backing.  $1.69
fabrics are now $1.99. I got out of there less $57 and a almost everything
on my list.  I can do a better
hit on the place when I don't take DH along but he is
a great sport!
Dad and a visit to M&L is a pretty great day!
