With much of our west coast ablaze for weeks, I don't know how much play this is getting in the national news, but it's very, very bad in much of Oregon right now.

Our local news is relaying stories of entire small towns cut off and burned to the ground.

Words like "mass casualty" are starting to creep into news stories.

A grim governor mentioning that the fires could be the most costly in lives ever, for the state of Oregon.

Initial rumors of arson in Washington and Oregon are now being backed by actual investigations and arrests.

Washington lost most of the small down of Malden, and much of small Bridgeport as well.

Honestly, it's been so bad that I don't think the authorities know exactly what they're dealing with yet, but they're preparing for the worst.

Thankfully somewhat cooler temps, and a bit of rain is forecast.

I don't know how this may have affected Nosler, in Bend, Oregon, but it can't be good.

Looks like the same folks that are behind all the riots from what I understand. Shows how utterly evil those people are and how much they will fight to have their evil deeds stay quiet.

I sure do feel bad for all those affected and hope and pray this stuff ends soon.

To be certain, a lot of good people are being hurt. News reports do speak of arson in at least one instance in OR, with discovery of human remains. Certainly doesn't look good. What looks even worse are politicians who are using the fires to bolster their tale of "climate change." Those brave men and women who are fighting these fires deserve our respect and all the support they can receive.

Yeah I had a front row seat to watch the mount Clemens fire as it headed towards Ellensburg. The woods are so dry you would be better off with bubble wrap instead of boots.

Thanks Guy and all- to be honest, I just sorta keep the news shut off these days. Thanks for the update. So terribly sad and then to find out that Arson may be involved... Just speechless. CL

Cooler and wetter weather for the west side of the state is in the forecast. While a wetting rain will not put out the fires, it will allow firefighters to establish and hold control lines that they cannot address during hot and windy weather, and address the priority fires. The days are already shorter, and humidities up from just a few weeks ago.. If this pattern continues, it will certainly put the hurt the existing fires.

Yes, the weather is changing in our favor.

Thankfully.

AQI (air quality index) is "only" 384 this morning. Still very unhealthy but about 100 points below yesterday's figure.

Even inside the house smells like smoke, but not as bad as outside. Really limited our outdoor activities yesterday, trying to stay healthy.

Our gov decided that we could open the gyms today. That's a good thing. They've been shut down for six months! I don't know how the smaller gyms in town are hanging on financially. Here, they've always let people come in and workout for free when the wildfire smoke is this bad. Same thing today the gym owners tell us.

Hope no one here is in the path of the fires.

I've read elsewhere where at least 6 people so far have been arrested for arson. There's even a video where a woman caught a dude starting a fire on her property. She held him at gun point till the cops came. But from our oh so honest MSM? Crickets. BTW, the lady that caught the guy lives in Oregon.
I saw a map about two days ago showing the fires in all 3 states and there's no way in hell you can convince me most are from power lines.

The “officials” are really downplaying the arsonist idea. In Oregon I think the Lincoln city fire was electric lines. The main source of the Santiam Fire was a contained fire in the wilderness that blew up. Sure were a lot of small fires down in the valley that merged.

The only problem with the arson theory is eastern Oregon and Washington for that matter are much more susceptible to wild fire and there are just a few small lightning caused fires.

We had a tiny bit of rain last night, but only a bit.

Could use a few days of steady, slow, easy, cool rain.

Got another one started south of Pendleton over the weekend. Reported to be moving quickly.

My old home area in W CO has also experienced a lot of fire this year. I believe one of the biggest ones in state history. The loss of life and property is never good. There is a lot of that country that could use a good fire, and what comes back usually is much better in the long run. Hopefully it spares as many homes as possible though.
