Good 47º dark super smokey morning. No sun coming through the smoke! Yesterday we topped at 95º in the late afternoon.
Going outside is dangerous with all the smoke and ash. I bought these last year when we had a huge fire in Josephine County and needed them. Now, again this year!
As of Friday the fire in the Josephine County area, Taylor Creek Fire, has my friends Jennifer and Mike on level 2 evacuation alert. They are on Pickett Creek Road and the evacuations were a few miles from them on West Pickett Creek Road
This is the fire on the mountain above where they live...
Yesterday I talked to Jennifer and she says with all the watering Mike is doing and with the sprinklers on the roof, they are not leaving their house.
I was outside and these helicopters flew over. They are part of the fire fighting crew.
Also, there were a couple turkey vultures in flight.....
On the news last night a meteorologist is at the fire camp in Merlin and was charting the weather for the fire fighters. He talked about a storm coming in tonight and showed this photo of mine!!!
Picture of the Day...
This is my spot! (shared by Dale Yellin...LASD ret.)
On July 20,1969 President Richard Nixon made the first phone to Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on the moon.
That ultimate long-distance call, via telephone-to-radio transmission, happened at 11:49 pm in the Oval Office. Nixon began by saying, "Hello, Neil and Buzz. I am talking to you by telephone from the Oval Office of the White House. And this certainly has to be the most historic telephone calls ever made. I just can't tell you how proud we are of what you have done."
Here is a video of that call.....
