Basically lost the little town of Pateros a couple days ago in the Carlton Complex fire. Here's a picture from last night at the Chiwaukum fire along US Hwy 2.

It's definitely a decent place to live, especially if you consider being the 5th car at the traffic light to be total traffic gridlock! You might not quite recognize Worthen St anymore. Public Works was relocated up to McKittrick St above Wenatchee Ave.

Yep, the picture with the helicopter. The fire was just to the north of Saddlerock itself, but mostly south of Number 2 Canyon. It actually burned on both side of Skyline Dr. If you know that area, you'll understand how fortunate we are not to have lost ... more »

They are definitely using the water on those fires, but water doesn't really put out wildfires like that. It only slows it enough for ground crews to use tactics to alter the burn patterns, backburn, etc. The first picture would be the Wenatchee River

Of course forest fires are natural, but losing towns is not really expected and is nowhere near as common as a rain storm, snow, or the wind blowing. It's not very often that a functioning, irrigated apple orchard burns either. That's the sort of heat ... more »

It's probably going to come down to the health of the other riders.
Added reply in a thread Will Tomac be able to challenge Roczen once he gets up to speed? 7/19/2014 1:02 PM
While I definitely think Tomac has equal speed to anyone currently in the field, it's hard to compare the goals of him and the other front runners right now. I think Roczen's only real goal is to finish ahead of Dungey more often than not, and if Tomac ... more »

Too vague. A picture of an injury might be too much for some folks' work.

I worried a LOT more about it when I was self employed.

Only clicked on the first dirty joke one, and I gotta agree that whoever had their kids do that should be beaten in the streets with a cat o' nine tails. It's hard enough to try to raise kids well, but using them for your own selfish comic relief in ... more »

Our local guy got left off the Garmin squad again this year so I'll probably pay a lot less attention than I otherwise would have. Today's the third anniversary of his stage win, though!

43 or 44. Resisted meds for close to a year, but wish I hadn't. Looking back I'd say that it started to have a bigger effect on my life in my early 20s. I was bright enough through most of my schooling to get by without having to study too much, but ... more »

If it didn't have any place, it's simply because you didn't like the logical answer. Both situations are the same. That's why you were stumped. You couldn't find a rational, unemotional response for that one that wouldn't show your inconsistency. Would ... more »

Just common sense and without a true technical background, I'd say the "equilibrium" point would be lower simply because the hotter metal would be cooled by the air on top and the cooler metal on bottom. The cooler metal will only have a heat source ... more »
