预期中的第二次雷闪天气没有来。我在黑夜中触角全伸了一夜的元神终于归了位。虽然湾区的两大火区都只contain了10+%左右,但是没有天灾相助,火总是会熄灭的。

过去一个星期天天烟味呛人,天空在橙色与灰色之间随意搭配,清晨我在焦虑中醒来,天尚未全亮,几乎感觉能看到窗外的烟的形状。有几个邻居每天观察空气PM 2.5指数,最高曾经到达600+。大约是政府在林中放了监控摄像头,邻居每天去看几个公共监控摄像头中的景象,已经卫星图片数据,播报给大家。

一个小时多一点的电闪雷鸣,一个星期灭火之后,这是今天整个加州的火情:
https://scdd.ca.gov/wp-content/uploads/ ... t-0800.pdf

所有的山全在着火。加州周围一圈的山接住了雷闪,中谷农业地区看上去没受影响。硅谷在中间山脉夹着的海湾处,所以叫做湾区。硅谷两边夹着的山,东湾与半岛的火灾是十年来最大的火灾。东湾34.7万英亩坡地被烧毁,半岛7.8万山林被烧毁。全县6万人被强制撤离。半岛山林是大片的西岸著名的红木林。硅谷人最喜欢去露营的big basin 公园被烧毁。两个本地报纸mercury news的记者徒步走进big basin 照回来的照片满目疮痍。红木是没有寿命限制的,又抗虫害,如果没有火灾可以一直活下去。

前天国民警卫队来湾区帮助灭火。今年,我习惯了荒诞不经才是正常,听到国家还有部分正常运转居然吃惊了一下。据说有团伙专门去偷撤离家庭的财务,消防队长的车窗被砸,消防员的钱包被偷。

有朋友强制撤离,家里养了无数的鸟类。还好第二天警报解除,得以回家。也有邻居有亲友在其他地区,干脆去亲戚家躲躲,某人替他们把垃圾桶推回去。据说附近了酒店都住满了人。很多朋友都来问候,说有需要可以到家里挤挤,非常感谢。UCSC 校区也在撤离,听说安排了很多Evacuation Shelter,三餐都有保证。

原本以为是看热闹:

湾区是环绕san Francisco bay一圈的地带,所以叫San franciso bay area, 总共九个county,Santa clara county是最大一个,就是硅谷。napa , sonoma ,半岛(San Mateo county),三藩市,东湾(alameda) ,都是湾区。

红木的新树苗都要经过火浴才能破“茧”而出,所以每一次火灾都是红木林的一次新生。自然会恢复的。。。

关于森林大火,我看见了不同的说法。有的生态学家认为像红杉这样的树种在进化的过程中适应了像加州这样的山火频发的地域,但并不表明它们必须要山火才能延续下去。更重要的是,近年来由于气候变暖的影响,山火根本不是小规模的、贴着地面的火,而是持续时间长、大范围的灾难,红杉林根本来不及自我修复。

8.24.2020 Mercury News: Burned Redwood will recover soon
California fires: Burned redwoods at Big Basin, other parks will recover soon, experts say
Studies after other fires in redwood forests found trees turned green in months

By PAUL ROGERS | progers@bayareanewsgroup.com | Bay Area News Group
PUBLISHED: August 24, 2020 at 2:16 p.m. | UPDATED: August 24, 2020 at 9:33 p.m.

The historic fire that roared through the ancient redwoods of Big Basin Redwoods State Park in Santa Cruz County, blackening all 18,000 acres of California’s oldest state park and destroying its historic buildings, has drawn international attention and prompted an outpouring of grief and concern.

But fire scientists who have carefully studied other coastal redwood forests after wildfires have surprisingly good news: Don’t worry. Even though they look terrible now, most of the trees will recover.

Not in 100 years. But much sooner. Amazingly, most of the giant, scorched black trees will begin sprouting green leaves again by this winter, they say, when rains begin. Coast redwoods, the tallest trees on Earth, have the Latin name Sequoia Sempervirens, which means “ever-living Sequoia.” Their breathtaking ability to stand tall in the face of floods, fires and other calamities is how they live to be up to 2,000 years old.

Individual trees at Big Basin today were standing during the Roman Empire. And, the scientists say, they will endure.

A San Jose State University scientist who monitored 667 trees in three areas in the Santa Cruz Mountains after lightning fires in 2008 and 2009 at Bonny Doon, Mount Madonna County Park and Swanton Pacific Ranch found that 88% of the redwoods that burned there lived and were regrowing two years later. By comparison, only 25% of Douglas fir trees survived.

“The redwoods were really resilient. Anything with a diameter bigger than 3 inches basically survived,” said Rachel Lazzeri-Aerts, an instructor in the Department of Environmental Studies at the university.

“Some of those trees looked like little charcoal sticks,” she said. “Within a year they sprouted new growth, new needles. They looked like bright green pipe cleaners. It was really kind of cool.”


Similarly, in the late 1980s, Mark Finney, a graduate student at UC Berkeley, burned 20 plots of redwoods, each about half an acre, in Trione-Annadel State Park in Sonoma County and Humboldt Redwoods State Park in Humboldt County to test their resilience to fire. He burned in spring and fall, and from low to very high intensities, with inmate fire crews standing by.

“We tried our best to kill them and we couldn’t,” he said.

Unlike many other trees, redwoods have cells that lie dormant in their trunks and limbs for centuries, he explained. When the trees burn, the cells sprout new buds. Moreover, their bark is up to a foot thick, and fire-resistant. As long as every part of the cambium, or softer inner layer under the bark, isn’t destroyed, the trees almost always recover from fire, he said. Even if they topple, new redwoods sprout from the same roots.

“These trees are amazing,” Finney said. “Redwoods are an ancient lineage. There are fossils of them from tens of millions of years ago. It’s not the same kind of creature as our other trees. They have lived through a lot.”

Finney, now a research forester with the U.S. Forest Service’s Missoula Fire Science Lab in Montana, looked through photos taken at Big Basin last week by a Bay Area News Group photographer.

“None of this looks that bad to me,” he said. “There’s a lot of scorch in there, but most of these trees are fine. You can see brown foliage on these trees. It doesn’t mean the tree is dead at all. It means the foliage is dead, but the buds underneath the branches and main stem are still alive, and they will probably sprout right back. Most of these trees will do just fine. I know it sounds shocking. If this was a forest in the Sierra Nevada, most of them would be dead.”

Redwood trees burned in the 1991 Oakland Hills fire, he said. Some looked like black telephone poles afterward, but most grew back. A few will be so badly burned in Big Basin at the base that they may topple. But most won’t, he added.

Another researcher who studied four areas in Mendocino County, Big Sur and Santa Cruz after the 2008 lightning fires found the same thing.

“One year later, even large trees where all the foliage was scorched off were covered with a light green fuzz of new foliage,” Ben Ramage, a former ecologist at UC Berkeley, said at the time. “Of trees over 1.5 feet in diameter, maybe only one redwood out of a hundred was killed.”

Climate change will make future fires burn hotter, said Reed Noss, a renowned conservation biologist who wrote “The Redwood Forest: History, Ecology, and Conservation of the Coast Redwoods.”

“These trees are very resilient,” he said. “They can bounce back. But the resilience is being pushed to the limit with this new climate.”

The fire burning now in Santa Cruz and San Mateo counties, called the CZU Lightning Complex Fire, started Aug. 16 during a lightning storm. By Monday night, it had burned 78,684 acres, destroyed 276 structures and killed one person. It was 13% contained.

It has mostly burned redwood forest land. In addition to Big Basin, the fire has made its way through undeveloped parts of Henry Cowell Redwoods, Butano, Portola Redwoods, upper Wilder Ranch and Cascade Ranch at Año Nuevo state parks, in areas with lots of dead brush due to generations of fire suppression. The last time a major fire burned in the Santa Cruz Mountains was 1948, when the Pine Mountain Fire blackened 16,000 acres between Boulder Creek and Bonny Doon.

In 1904, a large fire at Big Basin prompted the New York Times to report that the park “seems doomed to destruction, though hundreds of men are fighting the fires.” But only the eastern third of the park burned. Generations of visitors since have marveled at the 250-foot trees bearing black scars from that fire.

“People are saying on my Facebook and Instagram pages ‘Oh my God, the park is gone,’ ” said Lazzeri-Aerts. “I’m telling them the trees will regrow but the historic buildings and everything in them — the historic pictures, the documents, the exhibits on the walls — can’t be replaced. In the short term, the trees are going to look kind of charcoal-y, but it will all come back.”

我不是专家,刚才搜了一下生态学论文没搜出来。Peter Wohlleben在他的书里多次提到,他应该也是引用的。

我相信红杉林的修复能力,但我关心的是过去几十年来山火的规模越来越大持续时间越来越长,再加上其它的环境破坏,再抗烧的红杉也需要时间来修复。按照人类的time scale,还有时间吗?四月贴的新闻里说:“In the short term, the trees are going to look kind of charcoal-y, but it will all come back.” 树会恢复的,需要十年,五十年,还是一百年?人类还能见到吗?

顺便推荐一下Peter Wohlleben,他的The Hidden Life of Trees: What They Feel, How They Communicate – Discoveries from a Secret World完全改变了我对树和森林的直观印象。在气候问题上,Peter Wohlleben其实算乐观派。 树生活在慢车道上,动物(包括人类)生活在快车道上。人类搞地球,先搞死的就是自己。没关系,树还在,地球会慢慢恢复的 :worthy: 所谓高等生命则不一定。

说得就是这个意思。人类能活得到一百岁的不多,不能因为红杉可以最终自我修复就不考虑人类对它们的破坏。山火是自然的一部分,但越演越烈的趋势是人类造成的。

我原先一直觉得象终结者那种科幻片把未来描写得地狱一样太会扯了。唉,看到昨天一整天那深橘黑色的天,原来是我天真了。原本天气预报是90+华氏度,因为太阳已经完全被粉尘遮住,这两天的最高温度都只有60+华氏度。

给其他地方的同学讲解下,上面小情给的录像是昨天的实景,不是做的。北方加州与Oregen的大火形成的大量粉尘升到1000米以上的高空,飘到了湾区,遮天蔽日,白天都没有太阳,就像永远没有白天一样,原本预告酷热的天气,温度比预期低了30华氏度。就跟终结者里描述的已经不适合人类生存的未来一样。

好恐怖。NPR采访一个农场主,他说动物都吓得安静了,鸡不下蛋。
读了篇纽约时报的报道,说气候变化的灾难会多重叠加。2017年加州干旱,死了一亿六千万棵树,所以这次火势广扩散快。浓烟造成居民呼吸系统出问题,去医院,给新冠期间已经重负的医院带来更多负担。被烧的房子将在未来多年被燃烧的塑料释放有害成分进入水系统。

8月份的时候,我看到我的桂花的叶子腋下爆出很多芽点。我其实从来没有见过桂花,也不认识这是不是。上个月桂花开了,在湾区大火的霾天气中。卖花的先生问我要金桂银桂,我选了金桂。可是我对着网上的图看,我觉得这个是丹桂?不管叫什么吧,我好喜欢这个颜色。

对封城越来越没有话想说。一开始对忽然有不可抗拒之借口不能抛头露面的欣喜之情荡然无存。日子久了,我恍惚觉得这就是正常生活,今天与昨天没有明显分别。今年与去年也一样。几乎已经不太能相信还会有恢复旧日生活的一天,如果有,自己又能不能重新适应。好像那种言简意赅的电影语言,房间里是日常对话,电视新闻中的重大事件在刻画年代。每个家庭像是住在自己的玻璃罩子里,我用无数个转瞬之间怀疑现实与我的距离。

在我的犹疑之间,季节飞快地变换。逝者如斯夫,不舍昼夜。邻居家高大的枫树,把落叶撒满我家的院子,每一页都像是特殊设计一样自由卷曲。我每周从相熟的果农那里订一箱巨峰葡萄。这周是最后一周,再想吃要等明年了。我和某人抢了一周又一周,今天,巨峰葡萄季节结束的时候,圆子忽然才开始觉得好吃。有一家日本老太太的摊子,总是门可罗雀,品种也少,东西也都不太认得。她讲话我也听不懂。春天的时候我在她这里买了三盆紫苏来养。紫苏又要太阳又怕晒又要水多。我给紫苏搬了好几次家,终于养得样子美美的,总没舍得吃,结果紫苏开始结子了!柿子开始上市了。她家的柿子每个都清理得干净漂亮。我虽然已经在别的摊位顺手买好了柿子,但还是忍不住走过去看看。她有个帮忙的看上去是西裔的妇女,关系看上去非常近,日裔老太太讲话我都得靠西裔妇女翻译。西裔妇女给我讲这种尖头的柿子是晒柿饼的。她去篮子里翻找柿饼给我看,这种东方食品我不用看啊,一听就懂。她又给我讲解,为了晒柿饼,这些柿子都是屁股是青的,只有上半截是红色的。我仔细看,这些柿子跟李子柒视频里一样,每一个都仔细地留成T形柄,很美貌,当然主要是为了晾晒的实用性。晾柿饼这件事连我妈都不会。我心里一动,觉得可以给团圆看看,就买了10个。要几块零几分,我再加一个柿子,凑到90分,西裔妇女要找零。我们北方人最不耐烦算几分几厘,我大手一挥,说不要了。西裔妇女又替我向日裔老太太问清楚到底怎么晒。我想着某人喜欢吃柿饼,晾出来给某人吃。回家跟某人一说,某人回答:“不要。我为什么不直接买柿饼吃。”

柿子洗干净擦干,用绳子在T形柄上绕两三圈,不用打结,凭小柿子的重量就挂住啦。红澄澄地挂在高处正好可以做秋天的装饰。但是,某人最恨在墙上钉钉子。所以我们挂在两个椅子背上。非常因陋就简。

空气终于清新了。昆虫大概都赶着秋天交配产卵?八月开始,傍晚虫鸣如鼓。某人带着团圆在院子里露营。不,我才不去露营呢。硅谷里的印度裔工程师Dinesh说:难民才住帐篷里。我从卧室看着手提灯把人影在帐篷上放大,平常团圆睡了之后房子里也是很安静的,但今天不知为什么简直就是静谧。安静的空气简直是甜蜜的。除了团子跑回来上厕所的时候。

英国又开始封锁了。虽然已经习惯,但隐隐的gloom感挥之不去。

笑嘻嘻有巨峰葡萄和柿子还是很幸福的,桂花更是羡慕煞了。据看过的纪录片,柿子有可以立刻吃,和必须炮制去除某种成分的不同品种。日本尖尖的柿子晒柿饼要削皮,晒一段时间后还要捏一捏(忘了为啥)。网上应该有视频参考,可用日语kaki搜索。电影《小森林》里有做柿饼的情节。

现在新的封锁不关学校,对我们没有太大区别,weekday 在家工作,weekend 去野外走走。十一月份我本来定了两个周末getaway, 住美食旅馆,想着可能要取消。
但是今天邻居黛比的一个房客发烧了,等检测结果期间,她得隔离,不能再帮我们送小绿上学。我和素食男赶紧开会对日程表排班,他接送小绿,回到家我带。uh...真是受不了啊,一夜回到解放前。 检测结果也不知道什么时候才能下来。幸好也就这一周了,下周放秋假,我们本来就租了康沃乡下的小屋。等我们回来,隔离期也差不多到了。

我周末去camping了。半夜被几下巨响吵醒,心想糟了,怕什么来什么,估计是熊养秋膘在疯狂觅食。食物和带有食物味道的炉子和垃圾都放进了专门的防熊铁柜里面锁上了。但是显然熊在使劲拍那个柜子。安静了几分钟,以为走了,结果听到巨大的脚步声越来越近,就是在沙尘摩擦的声音。然后又安静了很久,其实也未必久,因为害怕显得特别久。然后听到一声巨响,不知道一巴掌掀翻了啥,撒了一地。然后总算安静了。等了挺久打算上洗手间穿好衣服出来检查,发现是熊把cooler 从柜子里拉出来,拍翻了。那个柜子也就五米之遥,熊最近的时候大概只有三米,但是没敢拉开窗帘看怕惊动它。然后我打算去洗手间,我们营地在最边上,我说要不就在树林解决?手电一照,就看到两个巨大眼珠子反光😱熊就在十米外树后面。赶紧进车开过去,回来用手电照了一圈熊已经走了,否则就继续躲车里了。

早上检查,熊慢条斯理的吃完了一盒十几个巧克力,盒子整整齐齐的。cooler里基本都没少,除了打翻的两盒韩国凉菜和一盒红莓,就带走了一袋韩国牛仔骨,因为骨头和袋子都没有看见,汤汁也没撒地上,估计就是在树后慢慢吃完的。

这个熊好斯文啊,我简直怀疑是人扮了来偷食物的。 :monkey:
羡慕你们还能露营。英国最好的天气已经过去了,秋天老是下雨,地上总有点泥泞,出去野足得穿防水靴。看法国城堡糖水片看到他们在水上搭了个白色球形帐篷glamping, 觉得蛮羡慕的,想起来我们前几周去的乡间旅馆边上也有大帐篷glamour, 上网找了找附近乡间树屋和球形帐篷的地方还不少,可惜今年是太冷了,也许明年夏天。

这熊有品味。当时我也想过是不是人。但是人不会这么简单粗暴。而且那个脚步声,绝对有大几百磅。人没那么重。最恐怖的时候就是听到脚步声,还那么近。

在油管找到日本晒柿饼的视频,分前后两段,前面是老夫妇俩手工晒柿饼,后面是一群妇女工人们工业化晒柿饼。所以卖柿子的日本老太太原来说的是白天在室外,晚上拿进来;而不是如果在室外晾晒,晚上要拿进来... ... 真是lost in translation。原来还要削皮,还好我只买了十一个!
油管很智能地推荐了滇西小哥晒柿饼和泡柿子。好像做柿饼的柿子也很多样,我买的是比乒乓球大两圈,比棒球小很多的尖柿子。日本老夫妇晒的柿子好大!工业化的柿饼好像是加州很常见的扁扁的,硬硬地就吃的柿子。滇西小哥晒柿饼用的好像是我卖的那种。但滇西小哥第二次去摘的好像就是Kaki。日本老夫妇要刷霜,滇西小哥是用坛子闷出霜来。滇西小哥捏了柿饼,为的是把里面的气捏出来。

我另外有个朋友特别喜欢camping,我见到他就经常恐吓他:我们家房子外面的灯每到夜里两三点钟就自动亮了。你在你帐篷外面放个自动探测的摄像头。

对了推荐这个公园,(big tree state park) 非常适合带娃去。很多自然教育,campground设备齐全。大家不要被熊吓到了。

营地有一个红木树桩,是当年白人来的时候砍了做dancing floor. 我惊到了,说太可惜了,这么大的树多么珍稀啊。但是后来看到一个更精涑的,是一颗特别美丽特别古老巨大的红木, 被称为mother of the forest,是当时白人 把7尺厚的树皮剥下来,拿到伦敦重新组装起来展览。于是这棵树就慢慢死了。我立即就不行了。砍树还是体面的一刀, 活剥皮?太可怕了。

哇,这个砍了树做dance floor 太让人讨厌了。要是为了做啥祭天的神坛还好点。

祭天一般得是异教徒多神教,这么大的截面的能当dancing floor 的树八成自己就是神。活剥树皮为了搬回家做自己的博物馆太让人恶心了。

说起露营,前阵子我们看了个很有名的儿童电影Swallows and Amazons:故事背景在三十年代,一群孩子在英国湖区的无人岛上露营,从几岁到十几岁不等,自由得象风一样,离家好多天大人根本不担心不干涉。电影非常可爱,我们一边笑个不停一边惊叹,如果放在现在,家长要被剥夺监护权的。

好惊险!幸好不是蛇,我最怕蛇。

西方文化中把人和自然对立起来,要征服自然,有枪炮,又有一神教当精神武器,当年印第安人肯定觉得白人才是野蛮人,又野蛮又疯狂狠毒。

预告(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ztIQkixuOmc)看上去很可爱,下次和孩子一起看。提起一群孩子露营,不,被困,无人岛,我就想起The Lord of Flies。这部书/电影不是一直当成“human nature”的象征吗,其实最多是English Public School boy culture :mrgreen:
