The wildfires around the country have been taking their toll and it is now visible from space. We finally got just a little rain here today but still we are at risk, and wildfires are not ussually a problem where I live. I feel for anyone affected by these fires and hope they are out soon and for good.

Colorado's devastating Waldo Canyon Fire has left a massive scar on the Earth that is visible from space.

A false-color image snapped by a satellite yesterday (July 4) shows the blackened scar covering the mountainous terrain west of Colorado Springs, where the fire continues to burn.



Although the Waldo Canyon Fire has proved the most destructive, several far larger fires are also burning in the western United States, and atmospheric models indicate that winds have carried smoke from the multiple blazes out over the Atlantic Ocean and as far east as Greenland.

The largest active blazes are in southeastern Montana, where wildfires sparked by lightning strikes have burned 300,432 acres so far.

In all, more than 70 wildfires are burning around the United States, from Alaska to Florida to Utah.


The whole country needs rain. We are 41/2 inches below normal for our watertable here and the crops are suffering horribly I just hope no fires are started by all the fireworks going off each night this week.

That looks like a demon trying to get out, or a pitchfork.

Can't decide.


Stay safe all.
