Fire Season Fire Links

Here in Southwest Oregon it's primarily SWOFIRE, the ODF Southwest Oregon District fire blog. This just in:
Firefighters are heavily engaged this evening with numerous new starts from an afternoon lightning storm and holdover fires from yesterday's storm. Ten new starts have been confirmed on the Siskiyou Mountains Ranger District with three more detected on the High Cascades Ranger District...
Other links I have added to the sidebar for the duration.
I hope it's a brief duration.

First Campout

lizzy_and_tabitha_at_the_beach_thumb.jpgLast weekend we went to a family campout at Umpqua Lighthouse State Park. Lizzy and her baby drove down Saturday morning and stayed overnight, and she got to taste and smell the Pacific ocean for the first time. I think she slept through it.

In other news, Zeta Woof is staying with Red Dog in Portland as he begins a new contract with Intel in Hillsboro (Ronler Acres).

Traffic in Portland is worse than ever. It's easier to drive from Gold Hill to Portland than it is to drive from northeast Portland to Hillsboro. Why is it that "the city that works" totally doesn't?
