We live on a very, very small planet
Tuesday, April 28, 2015 — Ah, I was happily noodlin’ away on some countryesque guitar licks in the A minor pentatonic scale, completely absorbed in practicing my full-step bends and doublestops in various positions up and down the neck, when Cindie looked out the sliding glass door in the afternoon Sunday, April 19 and noticed Diamond Mountain blanketed in a gray haze of wildfire smoke.
“Must be a fire somewhere,” she said, but I couldn’t find any information on a fire in our area or even anyone who knew of a fire here in Lassen County. Still, where there’s smoke, there’s fire.
Then, Monday morning as I’m gulping down my second mug of Joe, son of a cosmonaut, the TV weather guy mentions we’re seeing smoke from fires burning in Siberia carried all the way across the Pacific Ocean by the jet stream.
