Yesterday afternoon, around 3:30pm a fire broke out 11 miles east of where I live. It was fast and furious with temperatures of 109, and 3% relative humidity. I spent the whole evening on FlightRadar watching the activity of the CalFire airplanes and helicopters delivering water while monitoring the scanner. The fire was moving north and we are west of the fire.
As of this morning, it is at 600 acres and 25% contained. The temperatures have dropped down – today only supposed to be 99 degrees. Hotter temps are coming toward the end of the week.
If you live in a fire-prone area, I highly recommend FlightRadar24 – Live tracking, and is especially valuable when you are keeping track of fire.
I was thinking of my Dad yesterday – I loved this man. BEST DAD ever! He LOVED the outdoors and nature. I am a lot like him.
He loved fishing and hunting.
I found these antlers in the shed;
replaced the old mounting and hung it on my wall.
Mom would never let him display them.
I didn\’t want them to go to waste; after all that deer died for his meat
and those antlers.
