TY, Classic! I just went out to buy a pack of smokes (heh!), and immediently noticed two large plumes of smoke rising from the mountains just south of town. Meanwhile, a really scenic area just west of Durango has also started to burn. It was less than an acre an hour ago and has now spread to 30. The local radio stations are giving updates every half hour on all the fires. So sad. In addition to the property loss, there is the loss of so many beautiful places and National Forest land.

Glad to hear from you, Sam.

It's supposed to be a record breaking 102 in the city today. When did I move to the deep south?

We've secretly drugged Infinite Monkey and transported her to a new location: let's see if she notices....

My car's gonna be about 975 degrees. I even tried to park in a bit of shade.

Don't think we'll hit 103 in 9 minutes though.

Glad you're Back SamIam ...fill us in on your adventures, please. Allegedly our high was a mere 96 today, but the City less than two miles away hit 104......

Yeah, okay, that's pretty hot. Ugghhhh.


FWIW the forecasters are saying it looks like an el Nino is going to develop over the next six months or so. MoFo drought for us and New Year storms for the west coasts of the Americas.
