The massive fires of 1898 burned well into November, making the fire season at least nine months long.

“Reports from the western portion of Colorado continue to tell of the ravages of the forest fires which bid fair to devastate the greater part of the forests of the state.”

    101°F in Greensburg KY…that town is 24 Miles North of my Farm. Summer 2021 – We never got over 90°F all Summer.
    In fact, most of the Summer was in the lower 80’s!
    AND we got 7+ inches of Snow last week!

    1898 Jovian aspects were Saturn just past inferior conjunction with Uranus, a positive signal, and Jupiter in quadrature with Neptune, also a positive signal. And the hottest months were when the inner planets grouped on the Jupiter line, and the colder months when they grouped on the Saturn-Uranus line, as in March.

    1899 had hotter summer temperatures in England:

    which was by when Saturn had moved onto superior conjunction with Neptune, a positive signal. The hotter months then were when the inner planets grouped on the Saturn-Neptune line, and the colder months when they grouped on the Jupiter line, as in May 1899. England is ideal for these correlations due to its proximity to the jet stream.

    Here’s the primary rules:
