Burning

I was away on another trip.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch half my country has been burning to hell. Apparently some bunch of psychos have been setting our forests ablaze. We have experienced nothing like this in our known history. Fires burn everywhere you look around the horizon – all is smoky haze.

All the mountains I normally ride through, enjoying that Irish-like, Celtic-green scenery, are now smouldering heaps of ash. Wild horses and cattle have made their way down to some towns to find minimal food and water. I hate to think what has happened to the rest of the wildlife.

Three folks have died so far from smoke inhalation.

We need a cold front to stop the northeast winds on their tracks. We need winter rains.

That these catastrophes are intentional is beyond reason. That these people aren’t caught – yet – is right down shameful.

Thanks O.B. / Shawn. Right now things are smouldering down, so to speak, but the damage has been incredible. A wind shift has taken place today, southerlies, so rain should be coming tomorrow. About time. Late. But about time.

que lo siento!!! nunca he viajado a esa region del norte de Espanya, solo en el centro y en el sur. pero siento mucho que uds. tengan que sufrir tal lastima. y mejor que los vatos que lo han hecho sean capturados y "pelados en vivo".

A.R.B. said...

Muchas gracias, Tex. Ya nos han llegado las lluvias. ¡Menos mal! Parece que las cosas vuelven a la normalidad y todos los fuegos han sido extinguidos. Gracias por tu comentario.
