This is the largest of several wildfires currently burning across south-central Alaska. And it's doing wonders for the atmosphere in Anchorage, too:

We've had exactly 0.21" of rain in the last 80 days.

Rev. Paul,
Were having fires too. With very little rain, the drought, and heavy winds its prime for fires.

Now only if we can stop the stupidity of humans!!!

Rev. Paul said...

Understood, Sandy. Rain can end a drought, but stupidity is forever. Sigh...

You guys trying to imitate San Diego?

Rev. Paul said...

No, PH; they have Alaska envy, since we have 44K+ acres on fire.
