It's not raining. This is smoke from California, Oregon, and to a lesser extent, other place in Washington state.

Miss me with your "climate change isn't real" bullshit.

People all over the world have been living with the effects of climate change for years.

Every summer for the last 10+ years, Seattle has had to spend days and days indoors due to poor air quality.

This year is something different.

All you fucking idiots in my mentions talking about Antifa setting fires can fuck all the way off.

1/4 Why is perimeter data on the #Inciweb fire map out-of-date? The Inciweb map simply displays perimeter data that is hosted on the GeoMAC #GIS server. Why doesn’t the GeoMAC server have current perimeter data? #WAfire #ORfire #CAfire #AZfire #COfire #MTfire #GeoSpatial
2/4 For most big fires there usually is a nighttime overflight with infrared sensing gear. Experts analyze that data and determine a new fire perimeter. They also determine areas of intense, scattered and isolated heat. That data is then hosted on the public NIFC FTP server.
