Doesn't fire season typically start in April? I haven't heard of any yet this year - maybe it will be a quiet season.
AZ~Thunder, That's worth a lot to me. Thanks for the update. you are closer than I am. I heard that they are going to close FR 300 ( if not already) any word? I heard of the EVACs. , so it does not look very go with storms moving in. I hope it rains a lot. and no wind.For what's it worth, a pretty big rain storm is moving through Winslow right now, with light rains and semi-strong wind gusts. From my house I can see south of Chevelon Butte and beyond. The storm has darkened that area completely from view and it appears that the wildfire on the Rim may be getting hammered with rain. I'm guessing there's a better-than-good chance that the Promotory fire is getting a big old dose of much needed Mother Nature!
You are exactly right Chief! I think that very same thing when ever I see these "disasters". We have a stupid motorist law maybe we need a stupid people law.That sure is good news! Looks like it wants to rain down here on the border but I doubt that we'll see any moisture. Maybe I should go out a wash the truck and have the wife hang out some laundry, that usually works.
I don't get to excited about fires started by nature, nor do I think we should put them out, even if they are a threat to housing. If started by nature they should be put out by nature, houses be damned. I know this will probably rub some folks the wrong way, but it's the way I feel. Don't build a house on the Mississippi, below sea level in New Orleans or in a forest and expect the tax payers to come to your rescue when things go bad, as they always do.
