If you scroll, you'll find all the Oregon and northern California fires.

So Dom, you're down in the Rogue River area? Are you near Grants Pass?

Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Roughly, yes.

Its also smoky as fuck outside so I know it isn't all us.

The sun is orange (almost like it was during the eclipse).

My old man told me once that seeing the sun through the smoke and heat of a true wildfire can be one of the most terrifying and exhilarating things one can experience.
He used to work on front-line medic duty when the fires got bad enough. Group he worked with deployed teams to treat injured civilians and firefighters when the situation required it.

When I separate myself from the tragedy and horrific nature, I have an amazing appreciation for the sheer power and recklessness of massive fires. They are a force I can not fathom, they are a beast and there is this feeling I cannot name that comes close to exhilaration like your dad describes. It's better than feeling 'wow'.

There was a fire just north of where I live 15 months ago that was incredibly large. It was just a few weeks ago finally declared finished. Amazing.

RE: Oregon is on fucking fire!
Now that I think it, I don't think we had any major fires last summer down here...

Let's all hope my countrymen don't have a bad summer this time. Unless I somehow missed it, we'll be going through likely a record summer (because every bloody summer is a new record these days) with two years with of fuel..

If we came from dust, then why is there still dust?

Yeah, I've been unimpressed by those wimps in Texas and Florida, whining over a little wind and water.

Living in the middle of a state on fire, WE just get in another nine.

Thankfully the smoke has lifted and went to bother someone else for a bit. Just on time, too, since my AC broke. Here's hoping that the repair people get here before the smoke comes back...
