ROFL!!!  :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

All that, and then they end up admitting they haven't a clue as to what the weather will do. :lol:

Damn, I enjoyed the Hell out of that. :thumbsup:


And they think they know everything about G/W.   :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Damn, one more fire in Butte County breaks out in brush and yes, it's very suspicious.
It's screaming along and growing rapidly, it only started a few hours ago and is already visible from satellite.

I was looking at Doppler radar earlier and thought I saw thunder shower activity to the north, but then realized it was all fire, and hot.
Right now we're getting high winds out of the south, but it could shift to a northern wind later which would mean a lot of home will be in danger.

Check it out on Doppler.

This is really bad. The pic doesn't even come close to capturing just how big it is now. Watch the video.



There has been significant structure loss within Paradise, Carhart said. He could not confirm social media reports about the fire destroying Feather River Hospital, K-Mart or Paradise High School.

Video.

Ok I know the area you and ST live around.  How far is the fire as the crow flies from you and ST?  This don't sound good for a lot of people.

We're up country about 70 miles South East. I know we're in no danger because this fire is moving West and in the foothills and we're in the mountains a couple of thousand feet higher, closer to Tahoe..
I feel for these people, you don't have time to do anything but evacuate. This is my biggest fear living in the forest, it could all be gone in a flash.
If that were to happen, we'd definitely move to Idaho.

The smoke reached us this afternoon, and man, it is black, as if it was right here, it must be truly bad to create that much smoke, lots of fuel.

So sad. Hopefully, you will get a break in the weather.

At least the wind died down, that's what fed this monster in the first place, and yeah, rain is literally, right around the corner.
This happens every year, people just don't clear dead trees and brush for a defensible space, the Governor refuses to allocate funds that prevent these preventable issues, then claims victory when he gets Fed funds at the cost of many lives, not to mention the thousands of people that lost everything.

God knows I hate libs, and I really hate what they've done to my beautiful State.

Camp Fire Update
« Reply #1510 on: November 12, 2018, 11:00:47 AM »
Last count it's believed 29 are considered dead, but more than 200 are missing and presumed dead as well.
To get an idea of the devastation of this horrible event, this guy abandoned his vehicle and followed a Fox into a creek he said was hotter than the hottest hot tub.
Fascinating read and a video attached shows just how fast the fire blew through, and I surmise, based on the fact that most of the trees still have their needles, that most of what burned was manzanita and chaparral, something that should have been cleared by the State, but Moonbeam spent the money on illegals instead.

This is my biggest fear living up here, nature does as it pleases.



PARADISE, Butte County — Greg Woodcox pleaded with his friends to leave everything behind and flee. The firestorm that would become known as the Camp Fire was bearing down on their rural home. They had only seconds to get out.

Despite Woodcox’s efforts to save the small group, a fast-moving wall of flames overtook their vehicles as they bunched up behind him at the end of Edgewood Lane on Thursday morning.

Had they gotten out mere seconds sooner, they might have made it out, too, he said.

“I’m in shock,” Woodcox, 58, said in a tearful interview Sunday. “Those poor souls. I tried to get them out, but we were trapped like rats.”
Much more~~~

One other point, for those not familiar with the terrain, Paradise is known as a rural retirement area, so more than half the community, as I remember it was above the age of 60.
It is a really pretty area, but prone to fires due to the brush in the area that provides a sense of privacy, so a lot of people liked to keep a buffer surrounding their properties, but when you have wind like we just experienced, there is no escape, even if the wind isn't blowing, a fire can combust anything into flame 300' away just from the heat alone.

To give you a better idea on just how bad 30 MPH stead winds can be on a fire like this, you can expect to see fires starting a mile ahead of the originating burn.
I had heard that they were concerned that the fire was about to jump Lake Oroville, the same lake that had damn failure during our wet year.
Word was that the fire threatened to jump the lake at Berry Creek, but there seems to be a news blackout on this, because people are claiming it did but the news isn't reporting it, and I can only imagine it's political for one and they don't want to panic Oroville residents.
The winds are to continue through today, as noted on the map. I live about 30 miles to the South as the crow flies.



To give you an idea of the area  burning, here are two Zillow listings, one in the foothills, the other in the mountains.

Note the trees bending in the wind.

Some of you could see our smoke as far away as the East coast.



Given the current configuration of the upper level winds over the United States, theoretically this is not impossible. However, the smoke has a long way to travel, and it is also passing through a storm system in the Midwest.

Well Winter is setting in after tonight I don't see anything above 35º at night. 
Time to settle in for 3 months of day time not getting much above 40º.  There
is frost on the pumpkin now most every A.M. along with fog rolling in over the
river from the high ridge most mornings for about 3 to 4 hrs. 

I must be getting old as I find myself waking up at night more just to see if I am
alive.   :lol:
