It's going to be a bad fire year!
It is so unbelievably dry around here! Most of the winter has had temps in the 50s and 60s. We have had little to no precip all winter!
This makes me very nervous! My house is on the last street in my subdivision. Behind me is a road then nothing but mesa. Dry mesa......
Normally our fire season doesn't start until May. We're already getting small grass fires once every week or so. Luckily, they've been able to put them out quickly, and luckily none by me!
But, now that it's spring, our windy season has begun. For the next few months it'll pretty much just be WINDY all the time. That's when the bad fires happen (remember the Cerro Grande fire in Los Alamos a few years ago?)
