California: Dry and Getting Drier

Haven’t blogged about the hundreds of fires that have broken out over the last two weeks in California. The good news is that few of them have grown to be large (with the notable exception of the Basin Complex and Indians Wildland fire in the Big Sur area, which total over 100,000 acres). For more, see Inciweb (here).

But here’s the underlying question: Is there a connection between our super-dry spring and these fires?

Not sure, but it would be interesting to superimpose a map of fire outbreaks and a map of precipitation. Here’s one such map for June, via Desert Research Institute’s California climate tracker page (here).

As you can see, it’s been a bit dry lately…

  1. Hi,

    The above statement seems to be contradictory. The situation is very critical and need an experienced campaigner to resolve it. Wind of change scorpions billy wind browin in the wind Eddie van halen respect the wind …. electricity from wind California spirit wind ranch.
