Burning $$$$

Windows are open, but I’m not getting the usual aroma of crispy landscape. Could it be that the skies are clear once more? I’ll have to wait an hour or so to see the skies for myself.(Later) Nope. The skies are still a dull brown color; the sun is an orange disk.

Imagine; this is only June in our fire season. We have a long way to go! It could easily be November or later before we see the rains that will officially end the season.

And the cost of these fires; I wonder what the total will be? There are fire fighters from every part of the state up here, with their fuel hungry equipment. Plus all of the aerial support. What does it cost to fill up a dozer? A DC-10 tanker?
