There was an interview with someone on the news tonight. She said that between 6 PM last night and 6 AM this morning there were something like 5400 lightning strikes in Oregon. How do they count these things? Anyway, she also said there were hundreds of fire starts in the mountains and Central Oregon. Where there are usually about 10 hotshot fire crews, around 30 are deploying.
Interesting how tings change so quickly, isn't it?
I've added a weather bug here. Thought it might be cool for readers to see current weather conditions and the forecast. I chose this one because it doesn't have ads like some others do. My goal is to keep this site commercial free. Just my choice, no insult meant to those who are making a little money from their blogs.
Speaking of blogs, I'm seeing some changes out there. Blogs are being udated to the newer templates. Interesting coincidence on the timing, though! Is there some sort of fever bounding through the internet waves?
Anyway, this has to be quick as there are pressing things to attend to. I've spent some time behind the scenes today making fixes to the site. Some of the links got left out and I've put them back. There was no intent to cut you all out of here! I've also played with some fonts and colors. Little by little, you know.
Miles and smiles,
