California Is Burning

Well, at least it is a good 400 miles south of here. I have to add that as my mother (and others) sometimes forget how LONG this state really is.

I ran across this startling little satellite image on NASA's site*:

10-03 CA Fires Seen From Space

*Clicking on this image brings up a very LARGE image file... almost 3/4's of a meg in size. Dial-up users be forewarned!

Now, if you look to the top of the full size image, on the left hand side, you'll see the Monterey Bay area. This is NOT an enhanced image... there is indeed no sign of the marine layer that normally keeps our temps in reasonable ranges.
