Really bad, all around the peat bogs are burning and the city in full of smoke.

They cant put out the fires? Aren't bogs usually wet?

Not now they aren't and it's under the ground, only thing that really helps is a lot of rain.


Trees are dropping leaves, grass is dead. getting bad now.

It's been over 100 F here for weeks now, everything is dried up. An occasional thunderstorm just brings the humidity. BTW the Why Willy thread now has over 3 pages.

In Soviet times there was a project to use the peat in Moscow region as fuel, so they drained the peat bogs. As with many Soviet initiatives , we are living with the unintended consequences.

This is from an interview with leading Agronomist Boris Revich:

ВЗГЛЯД: Действительно, например, во времена СССР торфяники сушили с целью использовать торф для отопления...
Б. Р.: Абсолютно верно. Итог всех этих неграмотных и нерациональных мелиоративных работ горящие торфяники. У нас раньше был такой огромный монстр под названием Минзавхоз.
Главная их цель освоить гигантские средства, откуда и взялась идея переброски северных рек и других чудовищных проектов. Слава Богу, их удалось остановить только из-за того, что денег не хватало.

Luzhkov- famous for his ability to prevent rain on Victory day and other public holidays, has been strangely silent on the subject of Moscow's current weather. Maybe it's his fault?

Not only the Native Americans are adept at these things.

Russia has its very own shamen, mostly living in Siberia and in the Far North. I was lucky enough to meet a Siberian shaman once. People said of him that in his youth, he'd been a powerful shaman - and could indeed summon-up rain. But the physical and mental effort this kind of shamanry takes a heavy toll on the shaman, and it was something he no longer did when I met him - in his seventies, as he was then. He's no longer with - I wish him happy riding with the reindeer in the skies.

Sorry, it is in Russian, but....from childhood and juts good poetry:

These summer rains

Oh, These summer rains
Oh, These smells and sounds
I will feel better as if they help indeed;
As if there will be smth great in future:
Uknown Islands, unusual travels
Always fresh grass
there will be a life,
where I have not been ever
And my soul will be as clean as blue sky
after raining.

and in some places it is burning all year round deep underground.
so finally they got the message and will return the rivers and brooks who fed the bogs in the first place. the war is over, there is no need to save coal to make steel, so peat to heat Moscow's ovens and furnaces is not needed anymore.
this is what i heard on the news...
