Williams, OR (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: One of four helicopters make a water drop on the fire that started about 2PM at the Pacifica Botanical Gardens. Yes, my favorite photo shooting place. You've seen it many times. We lost our internet connection about 3PM and our power about 3:30PM. Power came back on about 1:00 on the morning of the 20th. Internet just came back this afternoon (21 July). We are safe and sound. The fire never got any closer than a quarter mile. It consumed about 500 acres. More shots to follow.

About Doesiedoats


I found and joined Weather Underground in September of 2007. Since then I have participated in the photography group with a great deal of pleasure, friendship, learning and a means of seeing the rest of the world.I am not only saddened, but quite upset at the announced closure of this part of Weather Underground.I hope that other members of the community will join us on FaceBook and keep in touch.I’m a native Oregonian, born in Tillamook and reared in the greater Portland area. After working in the Bay Area in the semi-conductor industry as a Human Resources Representative, my husband and I retired in 1999, returned to Southern Oregon and settled in the Williams area. Photography interests started early on with a Kodak Box camera and later a Kodak 616 given to me by my father, a semi-professional photographer. After many years of film cameras, the advent of digital photography has expanded my interest in the hobby. My camera is the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ100. The Pacifica Gardens property has become the preferred subject of my photography because of its natural beauty. I have captured all four seasons over the past twelve years. I’m pleased to be able to share some of those photos with my WU friends. Please visit my web site via the link below.************************************************
