    Currently there are 100 fires in the west alone and no one is telling us the cause. Makes me wonder.
    Definitely watch the videos on those links.
    While we're all caught up in Donalds Trumphs escapades and the stock market dumping, ugh US corps freaking out cus they are all caught up in letting communists manufacture everything for us, sigh - Korea flexing it military might- meanwhile someones burning down America.

    Well we haven't seen nothing yet but I bet we will soon see worse than we could imagine. The evil going on in the world right now is mind boggling but the people will not be told about it. I do believe we will soon see it revealed and possibly dealt with. Revenge is mine sayeth the Lord.
    Oh oh 7 year Shemitah Sept. 2015 reving up or down depending how you look at it.

    My step son is in Washington state right now working with law enforcement officials. He is a certified law enforcement officer on a national basis. Anytime there is a state wide tragedy he gets called to work as a liaison officer between the state and the local governments. He just got certified last year after many years of training. He basically helps ensure that evacuations are held for the safety of the citizens and that robberies and looting is held down. He stated that the winds are horrendous bringing the heat of the fire with them. Wind speed is hitting over 50 mph exacerbating the fire fighters. Although he is relatively safe, he had to move a bunch of people out of a small city. He said they grab what they can and pray that their property is spared. Sadly, not much is saved. The death of the 3 fire fighters was taken very seriously and it really was a moral buster. The fire has covered over 100 miles in the last day! We can only pray that no one else is injured or hurt. After the fires are extinguished, the hurt will really take place as these residents have no where to go and nothing to substantiate their way of life. We should consider ourselves lucky for now. The southern states also have their problems with the flooding. These northern states, if El Nino is going to be as bad as the forecaster claim, flooding is going to be substantial as their is nothing to stem the flow of run off water. I urge all to pray for those who have lost property and lives and hopefully that rain will come sooner. When the hurricane (Andrew I believe) hit Florida, State Farm Insurance had claim adjusters down there and they were trying to settle claims as fast as possible. HOWEVER, they were settling for pennies on the dollar thus enhancing their pocket books and not taking care of customers. Hopefully this won't happen here, but the good ole boy system is still working. Next time you need insurance, make sure your basics are covered, especially flooding. Big companies don't worry about the little guy, it's the net result to their pocket books that they protect.

    @ tommycourt, I wish him well and safe returns. I heard one of our mods is up there now.
    Still, theres no way all those fires are starting themselves of with lightning.

    Back to the stock market, its due for a correction. I'm not scared cus I'd never trust my money with those baffoons. It might as well be a casino.

    It just pisses me off to no end that our economy is now linked up to communists. If they go down all ours manufacturing and corporation get hurt which in turn hurts the little guy. How did all this cozyness get started with the communists and then borrowing money from them get started?
    Mark my words, there's going to ba a war started about this someday.

    Hey all. I'm working with the American Red Cross now up in Wenatchee, Washington, HQ. My job is to inspect all shelters and kitchens. The entire state is under thick smoke, but we received a small amount of rain yesterday. Today they are.forecasting for 50-70 mph winds. If it blows correctly, it is good. If wind blows wrong, it.will get much worse. We are going to the memorial for the fallen fire fighters tomorrow in Wenatchee. So far they have determined that lightning was the culprit for 99% of the fires, and embers for the other is assumed.

    Hey Jim! I'm being good for the most part. Too busy to do anything else. I drove 600 miles yesterday alone. Fortunately our shelters are pretty much behaving. Only a few violent folks and as of yesterday, no sex registrants have entered our shelters. Oh yeah, im also the key carrier, so I open and close the HQ. Did I mention I am also the plumber and law enforcement liaison? Lots of hats worn here.

    Havasu,

    If you happen to run across a cop by the name of Benny Fisher, he is my step son. He has been up there for about 3 weeks now. He is a liaison officer who co-ordinates with state, county and federal entities. He is easy to get along with and would be nice if you guys just got together and say hi.
    Good luck and be careful up there. The wind can be fierce and I know they are asking for any help they can get. It's a dire situation!

    I got his name written down Tommy. Just came up to Omak, spoke to a guy who lost everything, including his guns. A real bad situation. Winds reaching 50 mph. In 5 minutes, the wind has come from three separate directions.

    Devastating. Hate hearing that.

    Yep, still hoping for more rain. I had a bunch of pics of the fire, but my phone crashed and I lost everything on it.
