Default Things We Lost In The Fire

Thrad for wildfire disaster. It’s come to that.

The Village of Lytton posted three all time temperature records in a row. It isn’t there anymore

If we get a heat dome like the PNW is getting over central & southern CA (or for fuck's sake, possibly even if we don't), it'll be another summer of infernos for some, thick smoke-overcast for others. The valley we live in is just right for smoke from the southeast to park its fat ass over us and stay there.

Yeah, burning to death would be bad too.

At this point I presume everything in California will burn down eventually. Which is probably a bit of depressed pessimism, but at this point it’s less about getting sad about what the fires burn and more about surviving them. A few years ago now part of the foothills that I grew up in burned down. Then I lost a friend (not to the fire) and we commemorated her at a nice burner art establishment. A year or so later, that burned down. Then some of the friends I commemorated her with died in a boat fire. And here were are again, in scorching hot fire season. I do feel some of the pessimism is well earned.

The only reason I thanked that poast is because I agree, you earned the pessimism.

I hear about house or appartment fires all the time and don't give a shit - but any wildlife like chipmunks or little boiled salmons - I cry

Heat Dome + Athens = evacuations from a major fire on the outskirts.

I don’t think we have a Towns you didn’t know existed but also died thread, so…
Greenville California. was a town of a bit over 1000 people, some its historic buildings date back to 1881 when… the town was destroyed in a fire… hmm I’m starting to see a pattern. All the people survived.

Look, just cause you guys have your one night stand building clad fires, doesn’t mean others don’t like to wine and dine their fires and learn their name, maybe order them a whole winery, with some goldrush town for desert…

Welcome to conservative California,
You’ll known I’m dead when the explosives go off“They are met with people who have guns and [are] saying, ‘Get off my property and you are not telling me to leave,’” he said.

In response to those who flatly refused to evacuate, he said, deputies were asking for next-of-kin information so they would have someone to notify if the holdouts died.

It’s especially amusing as when dead they will be laughed at by other conservatives for being a kooky Kalifornian Liberal.

Mom and Grandma's new place is in Weaverville, so, you know. Thoughts and prayers.

Mom is in Nevada all summer for her seasonal job, and Grandma already fled to avoid the smoke, so they're out of harm's way at least.

The California Dixie fire is reaching the size of Rhode Island, which may be the smallest state, but soon a whole state can fit into one of our fires! With the Dixie fire at 623,000 acres and Rhode Island around 782,000 acres.

Another fire, the Caldor fire took out the small mountain town of Grizzly Flats. So named because gold and copper minners were once surprised by a grizzly bear.
