Our yearly trip to Upper Lake starting on Sunday 8/30. As you know, it's Summer and California is on fire. We don't have small fires in California, we have big ones.
When the fires started a couple weeks ago, I heard a comment from the Whitehouse that the fires were caused by the Democrats. They were actually started by dry lightning, but then what does the Whitehouse know.
When I say we have big fires, let's look at a few. The SCU Complex fire. 396,624 acres as of this morning. The LNU Complex fire, 375,209 as of this morning. Then they get smaller from there. The next one is only 86,509 acres.
So we headed north to the lake with the idea that the LNU Complex fire was being contained and the air quality should be OK. Evening should bring some breeze off the ocean which is only 60 miles away. Boy were we wrong.
At check-in the girl in the office said that a couple days before you couldn't even see across the lake. That's about the length of a football field. From there it could only get better, right? I mean, we were already there.
So we set up.
