Wildfire

Due to fires in British Columbia, this morning I can barely see across all 1.5 miles of Budd Inlet. Reminds me of a typical day in urban, Southwestern China. Or East Pasadena.

In the Western U.S., this is the “new normal” for at least a portion of the summer.

If you want to understand why wildfires are increasing in number, size, and intensity, and what is being done to fight them, I highly recommend Wildfire: On The Front Lines With Station 8 by Heather Hanson.
