It has been unseasonably hot here. Several temperature records have been
broken shattered for the date.
And now it is very windy, with red flag warnings. A red flag warming is issued by the National Weather Service when conditions such a high temps, wind, and low humidity can cause a fire (if one starts) to rapidly grow.
Just this week alone there have already been several small brush fires. A couple may have been caused by trains. It is dry dry here.
Here is a picture of a current fire my daughter took from the downtown area. The fire is just west of downtown Hopefully it will be contained soon before houses are damaged. Right now the fire is in brush and trees along side a cemetery and golf course.
The area I live in does not have a lot of trees, so feeling fairly safe from fires right now. However, my family (mom, sister, brother, nephews) all live in an area that is susceptible. Keeping my fingers crossed.
On to other news. I am waiting to get my house reroofed. They will also replace the gutter downspout that was damaged a few weeks ago. So I got up early last weekend to paint the downspout to match my house color. It has been so hot, I was out painting at 6:00 in the cool morning.
That’s all the news I have for now. Hoping it will cool down soon, and maybe rain again.
