I think the lake fire in s Cal is approx 20,000 acres...1.4 million is hard to comprehend. there doesn't appear to be anywhere safe from violent climate change.I think we're at around 1.4 million acres burned up so far this year. 2004 was my first year up here and we had similar conditions that torched over 6 million acres. We're ahead of that year on this date so far. Hard for folks to comprehend how much land that is. We could use a bit of rain.
