  • I woke up on *Mars* today! a.k.a. SMOKEY California

    It's 12:00 noon and this is what is looks like outside my house right now in Northern CA. It's so dark outside, that it looks like night inside the house. This is facing south; where the sun *should* be:

    And this was take around 9:45 AM this morning looking north. For some perspective, the house in the first photo is light green and this house is tan:

    It's going on week *four* of perpetual smoke filled skies; everything outside is dusted with ash. This is by far the worst it's been and the fires creating all this smoke are more than 50 miles away. At least we still have a neighborhood; which is far more than tens of thousands can say. ...What global warming?

        You're absolutely right Steven, it was those damn environmentalists! And they caused the years of record drought and heat waves that have created the tinderbox that's California. 100° in *San Francisco*. The city Mark Twain described as, "The coldest winter he ever spent was a summer in San Francisco." And it was 121° in LA county! Not the Sahara, not the Mojave desert, LA county. I see they got to you too up there in Washington and Oregon with all your wildfires. Freakin envro tree hugging hippy bastards!

        Though not nearly as bad here but the Oregon Coast is close to it. I think it was almost dark at 515 last night I’m kinda used to this type of thing as I get deployed with fire crews but the family is suffering through it. My daughter’s Asthma is what’s really tricky. Stay safe Doc

            Seems like y'all go thru this nearly every year.
            I don't know how you put up with it.
            Stay safe. Stay well/

              It wasn't always this way, it's been getting worse over the years, but the worst of it has been in the last five.

            So this was SF yesterday afternoon; somehow it was worse there than here. There was no filter, FX or other altering of this video, it's 100% real. The music just adds to it.

                  Coach, I've heard there's another fire going on in your area right now; I hope you and you and yours are safe. I had family in Paradise who lost everything in the Camp fire and moved to AZ after that.

                    This was 1/2 mile from my house. The vid and idiot gets interesting at about the 28 minute mark. His verbal diarrhea is characteristic of a liar. The guy was released on $1,000 bail and then immediately rearrested for burglary at a gas station near the PD.

                      Was that the fire right there by Sumner/Bonney Lake?

                      Thanks D-Fresh. I'm safe from the current fires, we're about 75 miles away. But the smoke is messing with people who have breathing issues. When it was Orange, surprisingly the air at ground level was clear, aside from all the ash raining down, but now it's not as orange and the smoke has dropped to ground level. It's smoky just looking across the street. The smoke is inconvenient, but that's nothing compared to those who are losing everything. I'm just grateful my family and I all safe.

                      This is such dishonest reporting. It takes four distinct crimes and criminals, lumps them together as though they were somehow connected, and then implies there is a correlation to the fact that one of the suspects has caused trouble at BLM protests, as though that should tell you something about everyone who is protesting, or that the fires were set by the protesters as a whole. You could just as easily correlate any of these criminal’s actions to the type of car one of them drives, and by extension demonize everyone that drives that make and model. You could use this kind of logical leap to demonize anything you could possibly desire.

                      I have been to many protests over the last five years, all of them peaceful. I have also witnessed passionate and caring members of my community come together to support the families of fallen police officers. No matter what side of this divide you find yourself on, we all have way more in common than not. We all just want to live in a world where people love, respect, and take care of one another. The people who are causing trouble on both ends of the spectrum do not represent the vast majority of Americans of any political persuasion. We would all do well to not lump each other into radical categories that we do not belong in.

                      And the BS about climate change not having anything to do with these fires? Climate change doesn’t necessarily start fires. It does create the hot, dry conditions that allow any fires that do get sparked (whether by man or mother nature) to burn quickly out of control.

                      As a a significant side note, did you notice that the editors chose to use the picture of the only brown suspect, even though she is’t the one linked to either the worst fire or the protests? Care to wager a guess why that might be?

                      These fires are horrible tragedies. The criminals whose actions have contributed to them, deserve to be held fully accountable. But so do the people who write divisive stories like this one. To point the finger at large groups of people who had nothing to do with this tragedy is wrong, destructive, and the exact opposite of what we need to be doing right now. We need to be coming together to support one another in our moments of need. We need to be working together to find solutions to our biggest problems. We need to stop dividing ourselves and start recognizing the things that bind us all together. We need to break the cycle of labeling each other as the enemy. Recognizing when news reports encourage us to demonize each other would be a good starting point.

                            Saw on the news last night that there was a chance up in your neck of the woods. I haven't been outside to see if it's noticeable here.

                          No, it was not the Sumner Grade fire that burned some homes. It was at the west end of 167 near Puyallup.
