Another wave of Air Quality Warnings has been announced for Northern California due to the Napa fires.

And yet the AQI in San Francisco is presently 43.  It’s only 84 at the moment in Fresno.

To that end the major fires in California are largely coming under control the last two weeks.  That was undoubted helped by high elevation rain and far lower temperatures.  In Sierra National Forest and Sequoia National Forest most of the notable locales/landmarks made it through the fires okay.  I was concerned about Balch Park but it appears to have been saved by a recent proscribed burn.  Cressman’s Store in Pine Ridge was the most notable structure locally that was lost but the owner has already decided to rebuild.  That really doesn’t surprise me given Cressman’s has gone through a ton of structures dating back to the logging era on the Tollhouse Road.  All and all I think the Sierra Nevada Mountains came out pretty okay.  Undoubtably the overgrowth brings cleared this year and in 2018 will be likely effective in mitigating near term future blazes.

So much for potentially trying to clinch CA 36 in less than two weeks.  The Bouquet Reservoir is out in the middle of nowhere which makes me think that one won’t big that big of a deal.

Whether the worst wildfire season in CA and US histories was caused by global warming/climate change or state/federal land environmental reclamation policies, plus the COVID pandemic affected firefighting crews trying to avoid catching a virus while they try to avoid getting smoke inhalation and fire heat stroke, I can tell you one fire in Banning-Beaumont not far from where I live (Palm Springs-Coachella Valley) was caused by a ridiculous gender reveal involving pyrotechnics because the unborn boy is a BIG deal, and I recall my wife and I's baby shower in late 2011 had pink cake frosting (a girl, though I don't favor boys over girls or vice versa), not stupid dangerous damage to local wildlife and a death of a firefighter (BTW, my father is a retired Orange/Riverside county CDF firefighter in the 70s-80s).

we just had one (the 'east troublesome' fire) that chewed through like 110k acres in one day..

entire towns are evacuated.
