The stories surrounding these fires are just awful. They make me cry :(

It's very sad.

At least 15 people are now reported dead in the Santa Rosa fires in California's wine country.

Over 180 are missing (hopefully they're alive but out of communication), thousands of residents are in shelters, and over 2,000 structures have been reduced to ashes.

Chimneys are all that remain of the houses in this neighborhood.

It's shaping up to be the most destructive wildfire in California history.

It sure is. People have lost everything they have spent their whole life working for.

On another sad note, I can't turn my water on without thinking of those poor people in Puerto Rico.

I have it on very good authority that things are getting better down there. It's going to be a long time before they get back to where they were before the storm, but little by little things are moving along

Hard to fathom how a fire can move so fast as to trap someone without an escape plan.

RIP

I was so stern with my family when they had fire on the west side of the state and assumed their safety or people assume they can outrun a fire, I will never think that again about a fire. I didn't realize it had gotten so bad in Cali until I saw someone posting about it.
I had a friend die in a fire when the power was out and they fell asleep with a candle burning. : (

I keep thinking we will get some mile weather and all of this stuff will finally calm down.

The fire is still uncontained. Yesterday the winds picked up and shifted again.

23 people are now confirmed dead; 170,000 acres burned; 20,000 residents evacuated; over 285 residents unaccounted for; 8,000 firefighters on the scene...

It's so incredibly sad. And, the winds are picking up and shifting again today.

RE: SHE'S A POWERFUL FORCE -- NATURAL DISASTERS

Nice to see all the worry about me and mine being expressed. Fuckers. Out of sight and all that...

It's turning in to one of those situations where most everybody knows somebody or more who have lost their homes or they're evacuated. My husband told me my MIL got a first evacuation notice last night and, of course, she'd be coming straight here. I don't know why. There's a perfectly respectable evacuation center at the local city hall...

Every business is getting affected here too. My dog's vet appt. got canceled because the Dr's home was threatened (selfish bastard). You really see what people are made of in times like this (dust and a few bones).

There are parts of China that live in this level of smog routinely. Large parts of Southern California used to look almost this bad regularly too. It's friggin nasty. I went out to get the paper this morning and came back in with the paper and a god damn pounding headache. You'd think smoking would give me immunity but not so...

Hi bitches.

I may have a deal on the table to go to Puerto Rico for a month, $1k/day, sounds like a good deal. Got to find out what they are going to do about housing, I can put up with just about anything for a month for that kind of $. Security is a problem, hard to get a CCW permit.
Find out a little more tomorrow

And therein lies the difference. The fire pictured above and (maybe others) devastated city areas. Suburbs. When the collective "we" think of wildfires, they're out in the hills, possibly dotted by small cities but this fire has taken homes...it's like my house burning down. Absurd (except from the inside)! I'm surrounded by other homes and streets; I feel very immune but that's a fallacy. I don't know how the Santa Rosa fire started but the truth is, I have a barren hill (except for the mountain lions) less than a 14 of a mile away.

In the area of Santa Rosa....IIRC, on the west side of our major thoroughfare (Hwy 101) there are some fields, pastures etc. Again, I don't know where any of the fires started specifically but I know one jumped Hwy 101; the east side of that same freeway is homes and neighborhoods. So many people affected in this one who probably thought "never'.

You fucker, have you been doing this the entire time I'm gone? There are TWO POSTS. Trivial drivel and Random Thoughts...Unless you're planning self immolation out of concern for fire victims, get off your ass and find the right thread, lazy butt.

We had been talking about the hurricanes before the fires. That's probably why he's talking about going to PR to help.
