Not really. You have been callously pushing past any actual concern for the ongoing wildfires with your political/cold agendas ever since yesterday.

The house still stands. They let us in to check on the animals. Without the dogs there 4 of the chickens and 1 of the ducks have been killed, but the sheep and pig are doing well. We hauled fresh wate

12Z ECMWF is a very wet run...  

Give me a snowflake reaction if you enjoy waking up to new snow falling on top of old snow (Which is actually on top of other snow).    Snow.

I've never seen such thick smoke over such a large area. I assume it will reach here as well by the weekend.

But I thought the mayor from the town in Jaws told us the smoke situation would be A-ok with this week’s pattern.

They HAVE to put powerlines underground in these rural areas. much of the westward spread up the Santiam Canyon was a result of downed lines, and I know the fire up the McKenzie was caused by downed lines as well.

That’s an awfully big lift, and there would be opposition to the sort of rate increases that funding this would require.

It's called clown range for a reason.

The idea they had for the area around Government Camp will probably become a more prevalent thing moving forward.  Another game changer brought to you by your friends at 2020.

Maybe, I do not know how expensive it is, but they have to trim the trees up here every year, and the power to my house is usually out an average of 5-7 days every winter, so they have to send crews out here frequently.

Cold records from a cold trough!

 

It was a cold trough, Jesse.   Very cold.   The problem is that it went just to our east.

The record-setting cold trough is what caused this mess.   We don't normally have a roaring offshore wind in early September unless there is a very cold trough diving southward to our east.   

Nobody said it was cold here.

I know from the research in California that it would be incredibly costly and the burden would fall on the customers

Their solution is to cut electricity on windy days and tell everyone to buy a generator.

Okay I’ll bite since you keep referring to my post.

I don’t know what makes you think my post was covid related for you to respond like that? It was about the community coming together to help support the firefighters in the Sumner fire but they couldn’t accept food donations. It was posted just in case people think about doing the same thing and support in other ways.

your response to my post was completely off tangent and nothing related at all. Now please stop referring to it to push your agenda.

I did not intend any harm by that post that ticked so many people off.  A public official was lamenting the fact they couldn't accept public donations of food for fire victims because of COVID.  Why did I get attacked over that?  Then of course my response was terrible also.  Let's just shrug it off.

2020 is already the most severe fire season in California history.

Winter and spring were insanely dry, especially in northern to central CA. In some areas 2020 is up with 1976 and 2013 for lack of rain. It was a ticking time bomb and the dry thunderstorm outbreak in August set it off.

There has to be a way for mods to delete a post, but I haven't found it yet.  Point well taken.  FWIW I have felt like hell for the past three days.  Not to excuse my bad behavior.

We aren't where we are now without the pressure gradient from the Rockies trough.

But we also aren't where we are now without a lot of primed fuel. A cooler, wetter spring and summer leading into this anomalous setup would in fact have helped in that regard.

So it works both ways.

In WA at least all of the fires have been man caused.  288 thousand acres burned in one day (Monday) due to carelessness.  A real travesty.

It’s also a stupid discussion because of the obvious subtext that those two are just making it a “Jesse v. Tim” preference fight.

Yeah the 590 heights over us the last five days have played no role in the overall pattern I’m sure. Or the drier than average conditions this summer or most of the last several hot and dry summers in western Oregon.

Anyway of course it was a mistake to get his lawyer involved. No surprises there!
