Picture of the Day - Fire Of Ill Omen

This was the scene at dusk last night in Dillon Beach, CA. The fire scorched 5 acres of dune grass threatening 19 structures nearby as well as Lawson's Landing Resort. What is ominous about this is that the fire occurred in mid-April in the evening at the coast north of the Bay Area after recent rains and in the ebb flow of a powerful El Nino rainy season which dumped a lot of precipitation on Northern California. If despite all that this grass burned in this fashion lat night then what awaits California over the course of this incipient fire season as the ongoing drought deepens despite the recent rainy reprieve.
