    I feel like itís been over 90 in Denver every day since Memorial Day, and every day in the next week except 1 will be too. Is that a record for early heat?

    Question for people in areas without any fire hydrants: if you have on-site domestic water storage on your property, do you let your local firefighting agency know how to access it in the event of a wildfire? I'm a long way from a fire hydrant, but I have 4500 gallons worth of cistern storage on my lot. It seems like firefighters would want to know that exists/how to access it if shit hits the fan. Maybe I'm wrong, but I imagine rural/wildland FF's have pumps they can drop into on-site water sources if needed.

    They can pump the fuckers dry if it saves my place or a neighbors place, the cost of getting potable water delivered to refill them would be a pittance by comparison.

    I think that's one of the best available as it combines the ground monitoring data, active fire locations and plume dispersion estimates from model output. Purpleair sensors are integrated into the fire.airnow.gov map and it is easier to tell what's a low-cost sensor vs. a official monitoring site imo. HRRR makes pretty pictures and all, but at the end of the day its still a model and not real air quality data. @Norseman, I like to look at the ground level smoke product from HRRR rather than vertically integrated, as that's what we are breathing. I don't know why they default to vertical integrated smoke...

    ozone hit 90 ppb in the front range yesterday, fire/ozone season is here...

    We're in the thick of the heat now! Holy crap I hope we get a real monsoon season this year, unlike the one week super soaker of last year...

    Should probably just do all fire restrictions now, the new campers are out in droves already.

    Agreed, people are fucking idiots. Read a story after memorial weekend, 8 fires left smoldering down in San Juan's by FS.

    Agreed. The pandemic showed how saturated our population is with idiots, assholes and selfish fucks. Just slap the fire ban on now and itíll keep 1/3-1/2 of the people away b/c nobody wants to glamp without a fire!

    How fucking wrong did we go in that people don't care if they dump trash or leave fires burning? Its like every time I camp I have to lay into someone on the basics.

    Get good insurance and let it burn. If it is that much of a wildfire hazard and you want it to survive you should take it upon yourself to irrigate and mitigate all fire hazards around the home yourself. And of course, you should definitely PM Blurred for garden hose recommendations and other wildfire related questions.

    I'm just amazed that grown adults don't care enough to actually learn about the activity they are going to participate in.

    Just like watching 10 people in a row fall off the Tbar on a pow day. If you are a grown ass adult, it is extremely easy to watch and learn proper technique to ride the damn thing before you get to the front.

    Hot and windy AF around these parts. No rain in 10 day forecast. We're fucked. I do not understand why this small town cannot be proactive with a camp fire ban. Instead, the local chamber on Insta tells people to "have campfires responsibly". tf

    Made it out for a Taylor run last weekend with a buddy, just over 350 cfs. Nice and boney but have had worse. Was walking the Uncompahgre here in town today, may have enough to SUP for a week or two.

    The Eagle between dowd to gyp is flowing really well right now. Get it while you can and the posers are glamping the gopro games. The upper upper C is fuct. 69 degree water temps? 300-500 cfs? I bet there are 12 dories out there getting banged up from pump to rancho and the fish are absolutely suffering.

    And why are gas stations and markets still selling shitty firewood wrapped in plastic bundles? Ban that shit before bags, right?

    Cools off in Denver to 86 tomorrow then back to 90s. 97-98 for days next week. This has to be a heat record for late spring. We are fucked.
