Re: Lamberson Butte new addition

IMG_1277.JPG Looks great doesn't it! I did not yield to temptation even though I really had to pee :lol: . Wonder how this stuff works when it is buried under 10 feet of winter snow. BurnsideBob here in curmudgeon mode. Looking at sculpted trees in photo, snow won't accumulate. Ever touch the termi...

Re: Jefferson Park and Opal Creek burned?

Also looks like the entire area of the 2017 Whitewater Fire has reburned.

FWIW, in OneSpeed's Inciweb image, that's Woodpecker Ridge where the fire stopped. That also is approximately the edge of the Whitewater Burn.

Thanks OneSpeed for posting the Inciweb image.

Re: Leaders Failing to Prevent/Mitigate Fires

Clear cutting isn’t the answer: https://forestpolicypub.com/2020/09/16/wildfires-burning-in-heavily-clearcut-logged-and-roaded-parts-of-the-oregon-cascades/ Agree.

Re: Leaders Failing to Prevent/Mitigate Fires

The NWS, in its forecast discussion, was warning of an historic east wind event as early as Sept 1 or 2. The previous 50 forecast discussions are available, but that only got me to this one from 2:58 PM Mon Sept 7: Area Forecast Discussion Issued by NWS Portland, OR Home | Current Version | Previous...

Hi Bob, yep that was me; small world. Were you the one I was specifically addressing... I think you folks had a poodle? I recall seeing Maxwell Butte in the books, but didn't give it much attention; looks like I'll need to add it to my list! Thanks for the tip. Yes Zippyslug, that was us with littl...
