    I wasn't aware the Columbia River Gorge was in Texas or Florida. When did they move it?

    I never said it was in Texas or Florida. That wasn't the object of the post

    ...... DERP

    You don't understand the term "nature's wrath". So what else is new?

    Sort of. In concept, anyway.

    But the presence (and behavior) of man has somewhat screwed up the process.

    Over the decades we suppress the natural fires to the point where the forest floors become these massive tinderboxes of old fallen/dead/dry timber. So when fires finally do get a foothold they turn into these huge uncontrollable monsters. Which pretty much burn until nature decides to put them out.

    Wildfires aren't considered nature? How sciencey of you.

    The noun is wrath. Too bad English is so foreign to you. Comrade leaker lover.

    Too much brush on the ground allows fires to go right up into the crowns thereby spreading without having to go to ground so to speak. And crown fires are much more deadly for humans and wildlife and for trees.

    Yeah, the word wrath means "retribution", which is the context he used it in.

    Not sure how you thought they moved the Columbia River Gorge to TX or FL, or how you think wildfires aren't part of nature, but by all means continue to demonstrate your ignorance of geography, science, and the meaning of words.

    Maybe you should then provide the link of me posting exactly about those subjects on this thread. You think fires are a form of wrath but hurricanes aren't?

    But then you do seem somewhat confused with who is posting what, here.

    LOL I bet I'm the only one on this thread who has actually fought forest fires.

    I worked at Boomtown Casino just outside of Reno during a wild fire as a security guard.

    They had us on the roof stomping out embers so does that count?

    You can thank Enviroweenies for these fires. The oppose common sense forest management, leading to forests being a tinderbox.
