Due To Smokey Skies

There were still some clear skies on Saturday afternoon and one could see smoke from separate fires.

A comprehensive report from Jefferson Public Radio can be found at their website, HERE.

Fires are burning in Shasta county, Trinity county, Siskiyou county, Modoc county and Mendocino county.

There are currently several fires in Siskiyou County, including the July Complex, a group of three fires burning a total of just over 5,500 acres southwest of Yreka. They include the Log Fire just a few miles west of Greenview, California near Fort Jones; the Whites Fire, four miles east of Sawyer's Bar; and the Leef Fire, seven miles southwest of Callahan. No containment has been reported. Sunday afternoon, the Siskiyou County Sheriff's Office issued an evacuation advisory to residents of Quartz Valley and Mugginsville. - JPR

There are fires in Oregon as well. One of which is 20 miles from Medford.

On Tuesday I will be going up to Mt Shasta to get a progress report on eye surgery recovery. 

The weather reports indicate thunderstorms. If they are loaded with rain it will be a great help in controlling the many fires that have increased in size and are not contained.

The birds are very active in the Redding summer heat. It is a good time for finding a variety of seeds and other treats that the birds enjoy.

On Friday I took my Buick to Mike Cary to have a gas leak fixed. Mike showed me where the fuel line had cracked, spraying a thin stream of gas on the engine. Mike’s crew members Alex and Kevin installed a fuel line repair kit and I feel a lot safer about traveling.

Making your own apple pie is great. Just organic apples and a sprinkle of turbinado raw cane sugar and presto. A healthy, tasty, natural food treat.
