All we need now is a huge volcano eruption and tsunami to finish the natural disaster BINGO game. Heck, apparently, it’s not good enough to just add regular natural disasters this year. The folks is Iowa have to add new ones that nobody had even heard of. “Derecho”

I would venture a guess that the recent lightning storms had something to do with it...

Naw, it is the monsoon that Arizona enjoys in the summer.
Everything got shifted west, lost most of the moisture, only got local thunderheads that sparked without rain.

I didn't see any rain/hail events in Sturgis this year.

Still running fire up here past couple of weeks

Sky is brown here in Monterey and our cars are covered with ash.

Maybe we should manage our forests/cut some trees down every once in a while. Just a thought.

My supervisor is working remotely from Iowa sent pictures and a video right after one that happened August 10th. His power was out for several days. He ended up driving to Wisconsin I believe to find a generator. Just finished getting his roof replaced after a nasty hail storm in April. Said that held up well. He lost 5 mature trees at his property. He and his son were hanging in the basement for 45 minutes waiting it out after watching it get worse for the first 5 minutes or so. At the time he described it as something like a tornado but said he'd never seen anything like it before.

Mendo Forest has a mess of lightning fires going. Our housing facility has turned into a 2 truck Cal-Fire station for the foreseeable future.

I have to say, these guys are super clean, appreciative and overall a great group. So glad we have a place for them.

You must have stock in a lumber company. That would explain a lot, actually.

It's orange outside now in Cupertino and AQI is getting to the toxic levels. Here's the values off the link I posted earlier. Glad we got air scrubbers in the house

I dunno. I've been here a long time and these kinds of issues never seemed to have existed, at least for the first 30+ years I was alive.

It seems like now, every other year, we have carbon particulate fog everywhere and power outages.

Why wasn't half of California on fire every other year 30+ years ago?
