Light show late last night, mostly cloud to cloud I’m told because I was sleeping, except for one thunderbolt that touched down on the Paregien Ranch.  Eerie dawn with dark clouds and a big wind to fan the flames, cowtrails corralled half the fire in short feed.  CalFire crews, helicopter and DC 9 kept the loss to 15 acres. Crazy weather: 116° at 4:00 p.m.

  2. The West’s heat and drought spill onto Northern Plains. SD 95% in drought, reservoirs spring inputs extremely low.
