Bruised, But Not Broken: Now’s the Time to Visit Wine Country
One one thousand. In the same amount of time it took to read that sentence, flames from the devastating wildfires in Northern California spread hundreds of feet. It is almost impossible to fathom how quickly the fire advanced across one of the most iconic wine regions in the world, annihilating everything in its path.
Firefighters speculate that on the first night, the aptly named Diablo winds blew flames to reach advancing speeds of 230 feet per second, or nearly the length of a football field. Ponder that for a moment, a wall of flames 30-50 feet high advancing at nearly a football field every second. Often described by survivors as sounding like a freight train, winds from the wildfires launched embers as far as a mile ahead of the front line.
