After 200 days Northern California got soaked. Forest fires were doused although mudslides are next if the rain doesn’t subside. There are a few small fires in areas inaccessible to fire fighters.
Took this shot of wet lemon tree leaves in the morning. Raindrops beaded up on plants–it was nice to witness this type of moisture for the first time in about seven months.
The President toured the wildfire destruction and still failed to grasp the idiocy of his forest management remarks. We are in a drought climate. He says if we “raked” the forest, we’d removed the stuff that feeds fire. I guess he wants a giant firebreak; i.e., take down all the trees suffering so there was nothing left that would burn. Ironically, no tragically, his administration released a climate change report yesterday that warns everyone that people will die and our economy will suffer under the wrath of climate change.
