The fires broke out Sunday, a day before the official start of Southern California's 2004 fire season, which was declared three weeks earlier than last year because of dry weather and a tree-killing bark beetle infestation. Heard on NPR this morning, found on YahooNews.
According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration the western United States remains in a moderate to serious drought.
Oh, yay. More in YahooNews.
And it's not the first year things are dry. Arizona, New Mexico and West Texas have been caught in the grip of a drought since the mid-1990s. Colorado is in its sixth year of drought and in the Denver metropolitan area residents will only be able to water their lawns two days a week.
