    Smoke from all the California wildfires is crippling our wine industry. Vineyard grapes will have an ashy flavor as a result of what is called "smoke taint." There may not be any vintage 2020 wine – and we now have a new wildfire in the heart of wine country.

    Ten major wildfires are burning in northern California. The largest is the Beckwourth Complex Fire, a combination of two lightning-caused fires 50 miles north of Truckee. It has burned 84,000 acres and is only 8% contained. Nearly 200 square miles of Plumas National Forest are now closed and several campgrounds and hundreds of homes are under mandatory evacuation orders.

    Hmmm... You didn't blame Trump or the Republicans. I guess that's a start.

    California's six largest wildfires have all occurred in the past three years. The Dixie Fire, the state's sixth-largest wildfire, has now burned 362,000 acres (566 square miles) and destroyed the small town of Greenville and is only 35% contained. The fire began July 14. The cause is not yet known but a Pacific Gas & Electric spokesman said the fire may have been sparked when a tree fell on one of its power lines. Several huge wildfires, including the 2019 Kincade fire in Sonoma County, have been caused by downed power lines. Whatever the cost, California's power lines need to be placed underground!
