Fires

So the entire west coast of the United States is on fire right now. And I live in Oregon. Great.

Where I am, I don't anticipate the wildfires becoming enough of a problem to destroy my home, but people are being evacuated from 10 miles away from me, so if I should suddenly stop posting, it's possible I've evacuated to an island off the Washington coast. I seriously doubt it'll come to that, but we're ready to bug out at a moment's notice, just in case.

Incidentally, if you've kept up with the fires online, the pictures you're seeing are no joke. A bright orange haze has taken over everything, to the point that you can look directly at the sun with no ill effects. It's like Hollywood wanted to advertise the upcoming Dune movie, so they turned the entire west coast into Planet Arrakis.

I hope you and Sierra stay safe. This is fucked up.

This is an insane year. Be safe and don't hesitate if you need to evacuate

Or maybe not, I'd probably catch gonorrhea.

We finally got some rain this week. Or, more accurately, my area got a little rain, but other parts of the state got so much rain that coupled with the sheer amount of ash created by the fires, there were devastating mud slides.

I fully expect that 90% of America is going to be able to claim disaster on their federal tax returns.

I tell you, I checked my updates and it's 'fire, hurricanes, cancer'. 2020 is the worst year.
