    Maybe we are in the end times?
    Tired of posting in multiple threads.



    The Bay Area is fucking mars.
    Oregon (Eugene/Springfield specifically)has possibly the planet's worst air quality now in addition to a growing number of towns that are facing total loss...
    Washington...

    It's windy as fuck out here. It'll get like this where I live in the winter but I can't ever remember it being like this in September

    There are limbs down all over the place because it's rained like once since May

    Good combo when there is a giant fire nearby

    Yea sorry, confusing mix of things there.
    The actual fire emblems are active large wildfires. The lightest indicates under 10k acres, next lightest 10-100k and the darkest is over 100k.
    The squares: purple - emerging within fewer than 24 hrs, black - emerging more than 24 hrs
    Dots represent fire detection by numerous satellite sources color coded by recency (and the source) and it's not really worth listing it all.

    Here it is with the satellite detections cleaned up:

    In the case of Oregon there were particularly hot dry conditions (see: global warming) but also a sudden significant surge of wind. I think one of them started from a vehicle trailer that was dragging and creating sparks? I haven't been following those details too much

    My wife’s best friend’s father lost his cabin in the Creek Fire yesterday. Been up there a couple of times with the family and it was an awesome place. Her dad retired two years ago and moved there full time redoing the place himself and had just finished the renovation. He was able to get out with his animals but left behind most of his possessions. No way insurance will make him whole because he did all the work himself and hadn’t had it reappraised. So so shitty.

    Are any of you who are affected by this looking to move east? This is basically 20% of the year it seems and it's only getting worse. I wonder how long people can tolerate it.

    I read somewhere that 3 of Oregon's big Chinook choppers used for fighting fires were pulled into service by the DoD... in Afghanistan!

    We are fucking depleted right now. We need rain so fucking badly.

    It’s not just climate change, although that’s certainly a, if not the, driving factor.

    You’ve got climate change, a particularly hot summer, decades of short sided “suppression at all costs” management strategy, migration into high risk areas in pursuit of affordable housing, neglected grid vegetation management, record-setting layoffs in fire departments and emergency services caused by the lockdowns, etc... It’s a disaster waiting to happen.
