Already have two 25,000+ acre fires burning East of me, and it’s not even really started to be the worse time of the year for them.
It’s going to get really bad, especially once we get into July.
Hwy 60 is closed between Superior and Globe, Top of the World/Oak Flats is being evacuated and the town of Superior on standby for evac order.

Yeah, I think it’s going to be REALLY bad, but California is going to be even worse.

I didn't even plant a garden this spring - I figured that I would go broke watering it....
As much as I like fresh garden tomatoes, the cost to water and the actual lack of water reserves just isn't worth it this year.

The view from Florence, that’s all smoke, not clouds.

Yeah, totally looked like a thunderhead from Chandler, but I knew it was smoke.

Yeah, Big Wash area burned back in late April, really not a bad thing, it was so overgrown it was inevitable and it’ll be back in a couple of years.

Today’s update…
Telegraph fire has grown from approx. 26,000 acres to 56,000 since yesterday, evacuation orders now in place for Miami area, containment at less than 10%.

This year we will probably be OK, since last year it burned right up to the edge of our property.

I may get hate for this...

This is how mother nature takes care of the land

It will grow back

Just hate to see homes lost and pets killed.

It's not mother nature when some jack ass starts it accidentally or purposefully.

Yet it is, if no drought then the fires wouldn't hit the magnitude they have been in this environment.

We had to evac last month from the Flag fire up in the Haulapai Mountains southeast of Kingman. Second major fire in a year. Came so close to the homes that one person lost a shed. Hopefully this burn acts as a natural fire break for a year or two.


Widely published photo of this fire. The ranger station shown is less than a mile from the houses towards the fire.

Looks like these two might merge, can’t even see the sun for all the smoke.

And merged, combined over 210,000 acres, seems to be progressing in a Westerly direction.

If not a jackass then a lightning strike. Fuel load + aridity = fire about to happen.

I'm not saying we should be reckless, but let's be real here.

That areas been burned countless times over the millennia. In a few years, it will be just fine. Every biome in this state has adapted to tolerate periodic burnings.

Yup.. even the drive up 87 to Payson is looking decent from the fire last year.
