    Hello summer! The fires are back...

    Yesterday it seemed that my whole city was on fire. There were 3 very bad brush fires yesterday alone. Its spiking to 96 degrees already and it literally never rains here. Here of some photos of the fires I took

    Yup, summer's here. I keep complaining about my area not being typical Cali, and all the dairies and alfalfa fields, but at least it's all irrigated, so less danger. We do get the occasional fire over in the hills, tho. Stay safe!

    We're still getting dumped with snow in Minnesota. Six inches the other day. Do you want some of our snow? Because feel free to take some...

    But in all reality, stay safe. That's awful, and I hope nobody is hurt.

    The biggest fire was only 15 acres and was out fairly fast. It was at the River
    Kern river, lots of brush . It burned into part of a stable, and they just moved horses to the front dry lot pens. Bakersfield is semi desert region, and people wo move here don't realize this. We never get a lot of rain. More than 2" and we flood. Every year there are news storys stating.. clear the dead brush away from homes, out buildings etc, and with horses you need to keep the manure picked out of the pens so it wont burn. The biggest fires are down south and towards the coast. We will have more fires this year as usual, and just hope the mountains that surround us don't burn . Makes it really difficult to breath ! This valley is horse shoe shaped and the air settles here, so when everthing around is on fire , the smoke and ash kinda sits on us. We have at times gotten smoke from the fires that happen in the northern and more central part of the valley.

    I can't think of too many things more terrifying than fire. I feel for those even remotely close to a wildfire.

    The fires down south are much worse. I would be terrified. We disc 6 ft on the outside of our property, and along the inside as fire breaks. If the hills around me catch fire, I am on the phone to the FD, and turn on the irrigation sprinklers, misters and other sprinklers near the horses.
