Well, we're in drought conditions in my area. Fuels are as dry as you would normally find them in September or October, and dry lightning is expected this weekend--a VERY unusual event in these parts. They've basically put everyone in the District on alert for fire, and will have folks out working overtime, patrolling all weekend. Combine that with the 4th of July next week--not good! Here's hoping for a quiet few days with the public behaving themselves.
