The wind has hit here and there is a wildfire in Carlton, Washington (Methow Valley near Winthrop)

They have toned every single fire dept. in the county asking for help. It's getting bad. The wind is gusting at 25 mph. down here, I don't know what it is up there.

Yeah. And I'm not liking the weather forecast. :cuss:

DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

Isolated thunderstorms will be possible Tuesday evening over the
far north Washington Cascades as well as the Blue Mountains of
southeast Washington and the southern Idaho Panhandle.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY

Another potentially more significant round of thunderstorms will
be possible late Wednesday night and Thursday morning. Lightning
strikes will be a possibility over eastern Washington as well as
north Idaho. Dry and breezy winds Thursday afternoon and Thursday
evening may have the potential to cause rapid growth of new fires
started by lightning.

It's officially getting insane in Washington. YUGE fire near the tallest Mountain in the State. Massive fires up and and down the Cascades. Here's what it looked like on the Columbia River last night (at the Gorge).

Because some little jerk decided it would be a good idea to set off fireworks. :-X

Edited to add:

I forgot about this thread. lol dang it! I posted a time lapse video of this fire in this thread: viewtopic.php?f=117&t=73535&p=2236218#p2236218

I was so fortunate to have seen the Gorge in April of 2014. Do not know if I could drive there this October, presuming it's out by then. Just sickening.

From KATU News in Oregon:

Heartbreaking: The Oneonta Tunnel in the Columbia River Gorge was engulfed in flames from the #EagleCreekFire last night.
