Re: Medford Oregon Evacuations


Today I could clearly smell the smoke from the fires and the sky definitely had a haze to it, amazing it can travel almost 3000 miles

The smell reminded me of campfires in boy scouts, burning anything you can find in the forest. Very different than the fire pit/ fireplace fires burning oak and cherry

Good story about a dam operator who was trapped by the fire. Pretty cool head:

Good deal, getting some rain.

Not so good, accompanied by lightning.


In Salem, Oregon. 20 ish Downstream from the Santiam Canyon fires.

50 miles south of the dingdongs in Portland.

60 miles north of the dingdongs in Eugene.

Rain here as well. Lots of it. It is needed for the fires.

For our work schedule, not so much.
