Out of the Frying Pan

Northern California Fires - June 30, 2008

Our lovely state, she’s on fire again! This time it’s Northern California — to be precise, the exact area we’re planning on holidaying in later this year (says she with a wry smile).

There are 1400 (yes, fourteen HUNDRED) fires currently burning and officials say that the kind of dry vegetation conditions they are seeing (caused no doubt by the recent hot spell) are normally what we see in October or November!

So I’m guessing that unless we get lots of rain in the coming weeks, we’ll be facing more fires in California this summer. Bah!

Hopefully the last lot of SoCal fires left little around us to burn!
