I'm wearing asbestos underwear right now!
Great tone for playing heavy metal.
We had BC smoke all the way down here last week, plus some from fires in central Oregon. Sun was a red ball in the sky all day. Good luck up there.
Hang in there 24 track. Have those asbestos cargo pants nearby. I would say maybe pack up your music gear, but you have a tractor trailer's worth in your studio.
the fires at Monte Lake were 33 KM by highway to my house, alot less if it came over the mountain, Im not sure where this is comming from but Im watching closely
That is one heck of a fire northwest of you near Ashcroft, but from interpreting the Canada Fire map, it looks like the prevailing winds are like us, pushing fires to the northeast. We have been getting smoke from unusual breezes coming from the north the last five days though.
years ago I used to live in cache creek about 5 K from Ashcroft. Ashcroft is a very cool little town, lots of fairly large cattle ranches all around it and the buildings are all historical very sad to see it go up in smoke , literally , Up by williams lake there is a place called Vidette lake the buildings there are built from the original Hudsons bay Fur and trading post, it appearently is under evacuation as we speak
Boise has been socked in with the smoke from fires in neighboring states as well. you can see it hang between the trees here on the campus, and the sunlight filtering through appears orange. It does seem to have helped hold the temperature down a bit though. Before sundown last night I could see it hanging between my neighbor's house and mine.
Yesterday, early evening, from my buddy's place, looking westward...downtown on the left, Stanley Park in the centre & the entire North Shore & beyond, obscured by smoke. Thankfully, there's rain in the weekend forecast & following week
And here I thought this was a reference to the Sanford-Townsend Band song (maybe that is what @dlc1953 posted and our proxy blocked).
Here is the BC wildfire map: http://apps.gov.bc.ca/pub/dmf-viewer/?siteid=5131184402955244847
We're hoping for some rain to clear the air. I can't remember the last time we had a decent rain shower -- some time in June?
I spent last week on the coast: Tofino and Vancouver during the pride parade. I saw a "non sunset" over the ocean. The sun was dark red -- you could stare right at it. Then it faded and completely disappeared before it even reached the horizon.
My Aunt used to live in Ashcroft, back in the day. I recall collecting a jar full of black widows, taking them back home, to my grade 4 classroom
Pre-CBS Forest Fires had better Tone.
But this one is off-the-hook.
The rain allowed all of the undergrowth to become fuel for what we see happening right now.
Here is the moon from a couple of days ago, have not been able to see across the valley for weeks now
A sad sight, indeed...do you know of your local, world class luthier, Ted Thompson?
No, tell me more.
He keeps a low profile, using dealers, (used to prefer Japan & the European market), word of mouth & his "insiders" reputation. I had him build a custom, one of a kind, back in '99...he had to make a one-off mold, alter his jig from his typical longscale, to a Gibson, short. It was his version of a Gibson Roy Smeck Stage Deluxe, (using a blueprint I bought from Flip Scipio, a famed, NYC luthier). I beat both Gibson & Santa Cruz to their own remakes, by a few years. Great guy to deal with...
The smoke is back, again...
