Yes, we all knew this was coming, the past year has been a drought year with record low rainfalls. I have a friend who works for a municipal water board so I am always attuned to what is happening with weather and drought levels.
When we did the last cleanup, the ranger told me that the GF was at 59% combustible material. When it reaches 60%, the area is closed to shooting. Fact of life, we should just be grateful that our efforts, so far, has resulted in the GF staying open. If we had not intervened with our January cleanup, the GF would already be closed permanently.
