  • Wildfires are being battled in three states right now, summer barely starting.

    Due to the unusual heat wave in the western part of the United States, more wildfires have started than is usual for this time of the year. Low rainfall and snow last winter left the mountains without their usual snowpack, which helps to keep the forests greener for longer into the summer as the melting snows come down from the mountain tops.
    Alaska has been especialy hot this year, and Facebook has been full of pictures of moose wandering through people's yards and cooling off in the sprinklers for the grass.
    California and Arizona are also battling forest fires, and there are qite a few that are burning in California.
    Since most of the Pacific Northwest did not get a good snowpack this year, i am sure that we can expect to see a lot more fires all over the western states this year.
