Anyone who has watched any bit of national news over the last several days has viewed numerous stories about wildfires in California, and now New Mexico. While it's normal for fire season in the western states to start heating up this time of year, there are a few other things going on out there with the fires that isn't very normal.
While I try not to get into politics on my blog (in fact I avoid it liker the plague), I would like to point you to another website that can better explain whats going on. WildlandFire.com's Theysaid page
For those of you who are concerned about how our National Forests, Parks, Rangelands and Wildland Urban Interface communities are managed and protected from wildland fire, I suggest you click on the link above. Use the search function of your browser, your your plain old Mk1 Eyeball to scan the posts for the topic of 14-hour days. You might be interested in how your tax dollars are being spent.
Thats all I have to say about that.
