Isn't a Swift Evacuation just Taylor taking a shiat? Would that also require a swift evacuation?

Dam fire.  You don't see that phrase every day.
Damn fire.  Pretty damn common phrase.

If that dam fire burns down the dam, nothing will keep millions of gallons of water from flooding that lake!

I realize that the hurricanes are big news, but it doesn't seem like there has been much attention paid to the unprecedented wildfires raging across the western half of the country. My son is going to school in Rapid City, SD, and their weather forecast for today is "smoke".

Hopes are high that the end of this week will mark the end of a rotten, hot, smoky, terrible summer in the Northern Rockies.

Mountain Snow, Lower Elevation Rain

Interesting bit of local history. This is actually the second dam to sit in this location. The original failed back in I believe it was 64 during heavy rains after a beaver dam upstream broke. Caused pretty much the worst flooding in Montana history. The current dam was built with a double curvature like the fat end of an egg, and was reportedly one of the strongest dams on earth for its size at the time of its construction.
