    I activated another summit today in the Albertan Rockies. Started off clear skies and ended with a red sun and smoke. Ugh.

    You are correct Robb.
    I have been breathing smoke too long.
    Not that smoke, this other smoke.

    Well if we didn’t have enough “stuff” to deal with...we just had an earthquake in the Los Angeles area around 11:35pm PST.

    4.8 on Richter scale. Not too bad but being a few miles from the epicenter the quake was a sharp jolt. House was hopping up and down!!

    Anyways....what’s next???? LOL

    If the arsonists want to burn Medford and Grants Pass OR; then they will have burned up hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of acres of high grade marijuana. Enough to get the whole state flying really high, and I am not even kidding. I am guessing that I'd seen about five thousand acres being grown in these parts, give or take a few hundred.

    In fact, I pulled into a dirt driveway off of the main road of one of the marijuana fields earlier this week. Jumped out of my vehicle and got up close and examined them for about ten seconds (keeping my hands in my pockets). Growing about two and half feet high and is well through into its pistillate stage ready to crystalize. Thousands of them in just one 40 acre field. Smelled like skunk weed too. These are NOT seed varieties, but 100% top grade hybrid marijuana varieties. Got back into my car, and drove on seeing all kinds of acres planted in nothing but female, stinky pot for miles and miles.

    I live downwind from the smoke field, and am hoping they don't catch fire.

    2020 is leaving a mark in history that's for sure....

    I think no matter where we are, we're all looking to see what's next.

    Here in the Texas panhandle yesterday the smoke got so thick during the day it was as if we had local brush fires but we didn't. Another day of that eerie red sun.

    That sure wouldn't be good for the cdl driver or anyone holding a job that drug screens!!

    The company I work for does random hair tests, I'd be in trouble...

    Exemption, I’d bet.

    Still, I’d be running point-to-point paper logs (with daily prevailing winds shown). Wouldn’t hurt to mark up a paper map with known fire locations.

    And buy MORE Visine

    After that, all involved — men & women — will be needing a fresh set of teeth I get any crap today or in ten years over It.

    (Then I’m changing my name to Tommy Chong).
