 A bad fire in Ventura county, west of LA, has now covered 85 sq. mi. and caused the evacuation of 150,00 residents. 180,000 more are without power. Another smaller fire has broken out near HWY 405 just W. of LA. The strength of winds today will govern firefighters abilities to fight and contain these fires. Last night, aircraft were grounded from making water drops, due to 45 to 60 mph winds. I hope Dude is not directly affected by any of these fires.

I can be just as angry at the jihadists for wanting to kill me, as they are angry with me for being an American.

we might be rescuing a couple families from the affected areas.


give 'em a steak and give 'em a break.



a lot of these fires turn out pretty cool here - no pun intended - party for a few days and watch the rescued horses from inland run down the beach with the SEALs. - ya can't find that many places....

Hope it all works out for them, at least it sounds like they are safe?

Fire strikes me as the most difficult of threats to prepare for ............even waterfront properties on the wrong day.
