Remember the discussion here this morning on 0% snowpack at https://jackpineradicals.com/boards/topic/californias-snowpack-is-0-of-june-1-average-heres-what-that-means/ ?
It didn’t take long – I-84 is closed 5 miles west of The Dalles on the Columbia due to no visibility from smoke.
Wildfire closes I-84, miles west of The Dalles
A wildfire is in the area. I-84 is closed entirely due to no visibility. Use an alternate route.

It’s over 90 in both The Dalles and Portland – I suspect it will be a long fire season.

Really early for serious fires. Lately late summer and early fall have become really concerning in the Coast Range. Used to be rare that that was the case.

If there had been the formerly normal amount of rain, it is doubtful there would have been a serious fire.
I noticed the media really pushing the human-caused fires as somehow fundamentally different from lightning-caused fires in both California and Colorado. After awhile, I began to think that was just distraction away from the real issues of overdevelopment and climate change.

I’m sure I’m going to be sick seeing what happened from last year in Blue River.
