Still Smoky in Northern California...but Fires are being put out...good news!

As you have noted on the national news, fires have caused record breaking smoke condtions in most of the Central Valley of California. Here in Redding, visability is about 2 miles, and although there was a slight breeze, almost none now. The mornings lool like a thick haze over most of the valley. For those of you traveling or vacationing in the north state, be sure and call ahead and be sure your destination is open and operating, as some have closed due to the fires, and the smoke.

As on now, the huge annual 4th of July Fireworks in Redding is still on...but stay tuned. For the thousands that come to this event at the Civic Auditorium area....this is always a big event with the bands, the celebration show, etc, including the great Shasta College Community Band with over 100 musicians playing at 9 PM.

More to come.

Just fyi. Expect to go to the docs. Everyone will have cold type symtoms and sinus infections are common. It's really hard for the body to process all that soot. We had this problem for the Witch fires, and then again 4 yrs later for the cedar fires.

 

... but the epa won't let us do control burning and get rid of all the dead brush because of the air quality. Ummm.... I find the air quality of these type of fires far worse for a heck of a lot more people.

 

Glad to hear you're doing ok Ron. Keep Safe.
