My heart goes out to ya. I hope you survive the fires. It's hard to realize how dry it must be there. Back here everything stays green all summer. I guess many out that way have lost everything.

Thanks. California is pretty big, the fires are 30 or 40 miles from me. My childhood home burned down in one of California's worst fires, though, about 20 years ago. The lot is empty to this day, grown over with trees and weeds. The mother and wife of one of my elementary school classmates died alongside a policeman who was trying to save them, and both parents of another classmate died in that fire. I don't remember if it was 12 or 16 people altogether that got trapped in a canyon, the fire was coming from all sides. They could have gotten out had they gone downhill but they had no way of knowing which way to go. It all happened too fast. My sister's best friend and her sister escaped in their pj's, and saw a big burning tree fall behind them, blocking the road out.

I don't think the fires are that close to him now, but the news is flooded with the Auburn fire so it's hard to know how many other fires are going. The state fire map was not updated when I looked just now, but it didn't show anything close to Tac.

It was hot but very breezy here yesterday.

He hasn't posted recently about the change in his area for 2-3 days min.

Hope you're right Zenia. The pict's he posted showed the fire not too far away from him.

Take care.

Well, they say CALIFORNIA will Tilt @ a 45-degree angle & slip beneath the Limpid Blue Waters Of The Pacific Ocean! (Which is cool, the adjoining st8s will have waterfront property, hawhawhaw!!) If I (god 4 bid) Lived in Ca, I'd be moving all my COLLECTIBLE STUFF away! & MOVING!! U know Ca. USTA be a PARADISE! But now it is JUST A CESSPOOL Of LIBERALISM & RESTRICITONS!! Not 2 mention Pollution!! & It contains the WORST AEROPORT IN USA/WORLD..LAX!! Whne Kali falls, Nevada & New Mexico Will have Waterfront Property, hopefullym they will do a better job of running these newly-created beaches!! CC, who USTA LOVE KALIFORNIA!!

Apperantly...a couple

They were probably half baked to start with.
