It’s already warm here in Seattle with temperatures heading toward 90 °F/ 32 °C for the weekend. (The warm weather usually arrives after the 4th of July weekend). The dry conditions and warm weather is not a good combination, of course. A fire in the Wenatchee area in central Washington State has destroyed 24 homes and heavily damaged three businesses since Sunday, and thousands of people have been told to be ready to evacuate on a moment’s notice. Hopefully more fires can be contained early on. The 2014 Carlton Complex was the largest wildfire in Washington State history : the fire burned 300 homes and 400 square miles.
