I found the picture on this article. The caption reads:

> With Washington facing several fire incidents, a Type 1 team from Oregon is headed to the Nakia Creek Fire in Clark Co, Wa. 9 mi N of Washougal. (WA DNR / )

The Children of Atom have a settlement just beyond that hill.

The irony is that some of these folks in rural areas are decidedly anti government conservatives, until they need help from socialized fire fighters.

I keep wondering if humans were still a nomadic species, would anyone still be here.

But there’s nowhere to go. North, South, East, offshore, smoke from everywhere is converging in our convergence zone.

Seriously though, I hope everyone who needs one has air purifiers and adequate replacement filters.

Terrifying. Not raining and so warm is too along with dying salmon spawn in BC and 80% loss in snow crab population.

I see posts like this a lot - comparing real life to a video game. As someone that has never played a video game (except Mario cart when I was a child), can someone explain the significance of this? Why is it meaningful to people? At least, meaningful enough to write a post about it, and have others say the same.

I thought that the picture looks uncanny as it looks almost identical to the landscape inside Fallout 4. One of the Fallout series' theme is about the destruction of the environment and what we are experiencing is similar.

It's kind of like how others view art. The power of art is how it reflects back to us our reality. Though this is a more literal interpretation.

I think such comparisons help people to relate the experience to one another, since some haven’t experienced fires.
