My biggest concern is my (ex) mother and father in law who are at this point ... missing...(they live in an evacuated zone) we now have 10 dead and it hasnt been 24 hours yet, and they expext that to rise. Its mother fucking Armageddon out here right now. I couldnt work today, and most likely cant work tomorrow. Devastated neighborhoods....landmarks Ive know all my life,,,,burned to the fucking ground.....


    I dont think Ill sleep tonight when the winds kick up again.
    I am so sorry, sweetie. Please let us know if we can do anything to help.

    And it's almost always windy.

    I was there last August.

    This fire took some wineries, as well as houses.
    Doesn't sound like the government has managed proper fire suppression.

    When we read "1500 home" burned down the initial thought is of the statistic.

    But the reality is that at least 1500 real families lost everything. Most managed to survive with their lives. Some didn't.


    This is a genuine tragedy.

    That is almost word for word a line out of a Tony Joe White song. Cool

    Where's Elvis? The chopper we Aussies keep borrowing from California.

    God is telling us how awful we are for voting in that lying,narcisstic, ignorant man in the WhiteHouse,along with his sidekick who tries to cover his lies with false religion?

    If this were your Evangelical side,that would be your answer. The beginning of the end!
