About noon today I decided it was time to get the heck out of the house, so north I went. I ended up at one point as far north as you can go on Jones Boulevard, then began wandering south toward home. Looking at the photos, it’s easy to notice how hazy the valley is. There is a Fire Advisory and a Wind Advisory right now with winds up to fifty miles per hour.
The fire advisory is due to the extremely low humidity at five to fifteen percent, coupled with the strong wind gusts. Any fires that do ignite will certainly move very swiftly as it consumes the very dry scrub and anything else in its path. Gladly, there have been no fires around here since 2013 when I moved here and Lovell Canyon was burning badly.
Certainly not my best photos!
