The good and the not-so-much

Skywalker helps distract us from the dry, brown conditions and … what is that, in the distance, far to the southeast … ???

The East Canyon Fire blew up Sunday because of lightning Saturday. It started on private land east of Mancos, then moved to BLM land, and had grown to more than 200 acres as of yesterday’s reporting. Mancos is in eastern Montezuma County; the fire is about 20 miles west of Durango, which is in La Plata County. It put up a plume of smoke that was easily visible from Spring Creek Basin, more than two hours away by vehicle.

We’ve been under a fire-weather watch, wind advisories and red-flag warnings; strong winds, high temps, low humidity (9 percent!) and dry, dry country make conditions ripe for wildfires.

Stay safe, folks.
