Wildfire activity out west
I would be remiss to not mention the wildfire activity on the west coast that I have been hearing about on some of the major news outlets. I am a little short on time at the moment, but I'd like to refer you to Bill Gabbert's Wildfire Today where he has been writing about the Rocky Fire in California that has burned in excess of 60,000 acres, the Wolverine Fire in Washington (burned about 15,760 acres per Bill's article), and several wildfires in the Shasta-Trinity National Forest in northern California started by lightning (19,000 acres per Bill's article). Bill always does a great job on covering wildfires on Wildfire Today so I encourage you to check out his blog as I do on a regular basis.
