We did get some rain yesterday, north of us got a lot more.  It was preceded by strong winds from the south, which I'm sure caused some anxious moments(spot fires) on the fire lines.  Cloudy today with more precipitation expected Friday, maybe some on Sat. After that, long range forecast is for warming and drying. Following up from earlier posts (here or Historic Fires), the kids house did not burn up, although others near it did. They did sustain serious smoke damage and the freezer thawed (no elec. for 11 days) and caused extensive damage to the walls and floors of a couple rooms. Nothing compared to those who lost everything :-[.  Somehow, with 900+ destroyed homes and only minutes to escape for a lot of people, there was only one fatality. So grateful. And our forestland property by Chiloquin got spared thanks to the efforts of the Oregon Dept. of Forestry. They took command of that fire and got 'er done.  We have permission and will be traveling thru the burn this weekend to visit the property.

  When it comes to climate change adaption issues analysis; I state "we should not have to adapt."  Nor should our beloved wildlife. 
Estimate are that 95% of all species that have existed on this earth have gone extinct. If any species, beloved or not is unable to adapt, it will eventually join the 95%.
Never take life seriously. Nobody gets out alive anyway.
