I love maps to the extent of obsession, very cool GlacierDragon, thanks.
According to the main fire map, it looks like the entire Pacific coast is on fire...no wonder you can't see your hand in front of your face out here.
The smoke is very thick tonight, can barely see the smokestack lights blinking and the lights from Loudy are obscured, just a big bright glowing mass.
There are also fires raging in the Vancouver BC region and central Utah as well as the ones in California, the winds bring it all toward us. I have heard of nothing close to home but then again, I don't hear everything so something might be burning in MC to.
Generalsn, the cause of the California fires has yet to be determined, although...
I am very surprised that a raging fire has not broken out around here during some of the drier months with all the lit cigarette butts I see flying out of people's windows, skittering into the dry brush on the side of the road spreading hot sparks for yards.
Isn't there a law against this? Can it be reported? I just want to bash into the rear of the person flicking that lit butt out onto the side of the road, however, I am not allowed to do that so there has to be some way to nail these careless fools. Any suggestions?
Here is a USA today link that has more on the CA fires:
A Reuters link to the one in Vancouver:
And finally a SLC Tribune link to the Mil flats fire in Utah:
Hoping wetter weather is coming their way soon.
Anyone from the Humane Society, or any reader that knows someone there that might tell them about this, can contact me at the hospital regarding unused or expired surgical supplies...suture, draping, etc..
I will gladly donate these clean items to help defray the costs entailed by this program...provided it is done locally. I cannot help if it is done elsewhere outside Moffat County. This is a great way to begin control of feral cat overpopulation and is more of a humane approach that just outright gunning them down.
Contact me Tues-Fri, 0700 till' the job is done.
I'm NOT getting crapped on, thanks to the paintballs.
"My interest is not in being humane"
Typical Craig type statement. For those interested, it is July 2009 in the real world, I'm not sure what it is where you all are.
I'm not going to waste the energy trying to prove anything to you, it wouldn't make any difference anyway. For the record, my pet, and those preceding it, have ALL been indoor pets.
It all boils down to you having your method and me having mine, I'll gladly stick to mine.
Not to worried about hordes of Craig citizens reading this forum to find out information on who is making the neighborhood cat toilet less pleasant to use, besides, at least the cats are able to show up back home, if they have one at all.
Given some of the other methods mentioned above, I thought mine was rather humane.
What does working at the hospital have to do with shooting a feral cat with a paintball?
A well placed paintball traveling at 300fps is quite effective, "neon pink no wipe" is my color of choice, stays with them for awhile.
They really scout out my yard now and will scatter at the first crack of the door, which is right where I want them.
It will take a serious injury (or worse) at that intersection before something is done, maybe.
I can also see a problem if a truck is sitting there waiting for everyone to back up...and fire/rescue comes wailing down the street, needing to go north.
Has an east to north bypass segment ever been considered or discussed...other than here? Just wondering.
You have a good day yourself Xrsareus.
OK, I got my directions mixed up...sorry, it's been a very long, exhausting week.
The only leg of the "Loop" that is incomplete is for WESTBOUND traffic wanting to go north. All other directions of travel are covered. Looking at satellite imagry of the area, an east leg of the loop is very doable if the landowners will release some of their land...they did it out north, why not here?
