Why Wallow Fire?
Wallow Fire is currently the hot news, as hot as its fire. But the question, how Wallow Fire gets its name? I have made some online research. Apparently, I couldn’t find the history how wallow fire get its name. And who gave the Arizona’s wildfire Wallow Fire as its name ? But according to some online dictionary, Wallow actually means nostalgia.
intr.v., -lowed, -low·ing, -lows.
- To roll the body about indolently or clumsily in or as if in water, snow, or mud.
- To luxuriate; revel: wallow in self-righteousness.
- To be plentifully supplied: wallowing in money.
- To move with difficulty in a clumsy or rolling manner; flounder: "The car wallowed back through the slush, with ribbons of bright water trickling down the windshield from the roof" (Anne Tyler).
- To swell or surge forth; billow.
- The act or an instance of wallowing.
- A pool of water or mud where animals go to wallow.
- The depression, pool, or pit produced by wallowing animals.
- A condition of degradation or baseness.
But I believe that this is not the root for Wallow Fire’s name.
