This fire is like a left wing zealot. It has at least two distinct crazy sides. The West Side was cool yesterday due to the cool coastal air.

The Eastern Side was hotter than Bill Clintoon going after an intern.

When it gets hot inland on the west coast, that sucks up the cooler and often foggy air from the coast and pulls it inland for a few miles. Hopefully this will continue for a day or two to allow the containment lines on the Western Side to be connected and put in where needed.

Thanks to the Watermelon Green Jihadists and their no road agendas this is the cost up to yesterday on the fire in and around their former Kalmiopsis Wilderness Area:

The fire has been burning for a month since a lighting strike ignited it deep in the Kalmiopsis Wilderness. With 6,300 people assembled from around the country, as well as Canada, New Zealand and Australia, the fire has cost $52,450,000 to fight so far.

To bad that Andy Kerr, the Club Sierra Clymers of Oregon, the ONRC Clymers of Oregon and every Green Rat Oregon Politician like Kitz and Katz don't have to pay for this Green Financial Disaster!

Just another example of how dangerous the Green Jihadists Watermelons are to our society.

We can no longer afford to allow these Green Jihadists Watermelons to do this to America and us! Time to turn out the lights in their offices and send them home or to jail with zero of the illegal power they now have.

Heat records fall in western Oregon

The Associated Press

8/14/02 12:55 AM

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- Records were accumulating faster than beads of sweat Tuesday as at least 10 Oregon cities had afternoon temperatures of more than 100 degrees.

More than a dozen cities in the western part of the state set records, including Portland, which declared an "orange" air pollution warning because of high ozone levels.

The air quality warnings mean that state officials expect high temperatures and low-level winds, which mix with auto exhaust and other pollutants to create high levels of smog.

In Medford, smoke from forest fires mixed with the state's worst heat -- 108 degrees -- to create breathing woes.

"To add insult to injury, we're probably looking at some high ozone numbers here as well," said John Becker, an Oregon Department of Environmental Quality air quality expert in Medford. "Right now, the best advice is, if you've got smoke around you, try to take it easy."

Particle pollution, such as that from fires or diesel engines, is even more dangerous to health than ozone pollution, said Michael Heumann, an environmental epidemiologist for the Oregon Public Health Service. That's because particles carry chemicals on their surface and lodge in the lungs, he said, instead of being breathed out like other pollutants.

While wildfire smoke continued to cause problems in a few cities, such as Brookings, wind helped keep Klamath Falls, Eugene and other cities relatively free of smoke or ozone pollution.

Roseburg reached 107 degrees, the second hottest spot in the state, while Corvallis and Troutdale both hit 106, beating records that have stood since the drought-plagued summer of 1977.

Coastal cities were also hit hard by the heat wave. Astoria logged a 95-degree day, 9 degrees higher than the previous record. Tillamook also hit 95, beating its high by 11 degrees. Newport sweltered in 99-degree heat, blasting past its old record of 83 degrees, set Aug. 13, 1942.

But Florence was the hottest coastal spot, hitting 104 degrees. To the east, Eugene recorded the same temperature, and Salem also hit 104, edging out a 103-degree record for Aug. 13 that the capital set in 1920. Gorge winds didn't save The Dalles, which hit 102.

In Portland, the official high temperature as measured at Portland International Airport was 102 degrees, topping a 96-degree record set in 1992.

Man it was hot here on the coast yesterday had to go to Safeway to find air conditioning in our little town of Newport. I am sure Safeway jacked up prices for the day on easy to cook stuff. I saw a bag of chips for close to 4 bucks a bag and sandwhich makings were not cheap either.
It is much cooler today I hope it helps get these fires under control.
