Sacramento Summer is here .. with a vengeance. It’s been pretty unseasonable so far – running just slightly above moderate temperatures, or below averages. Not so much for the next two weeks! It looks like out of the next 10 days, we’ll see 7 over 100 degrees. No rain in sight.

There is currently a wildfire nearby Markleeville started by lightning strikes that has now burned over 17,000 acres and is less than 10% contained. A shift of wind could send the fire racing toward and through town. I worry about the 165 residents (including the dogs I think) whose lifetimes are invested in this little mountain community, for the totally volunteer fire department made up of the towns people, and for CalFire, who day after day, year after year, do their very best to protect California from wildfires.
Please send messages to your higher power, whomever that may be, to bless California with rain!
California’s not pretty these day – she could use a big drink of water. Please think good thoughts for us!
