I was thinking the same thing last night.

Yes.

Started by a pile o shit.

That is different, for a change.

No real damage done so far, except to some growers.

The price of lemons and avacados might go up some.

Some of the growers used their own workers and equipment to put out the fires. They claim the firefighters refused to go into groves because of the huge eucalyptus trees that line the groves and function as wind breaks. It was to dangerous.

It is dead calm outside right now and hopefully the fog will roll in, like last night.

Never in danger, really.

The DC10 is making "drops" right now.

That is really a big plane and it's so low.

The fire is about 2 miles away.

When it gets a little more to the east I will be under the smoke plume.

My comment is a couple days late and a dollar short, but there still remains a 'political
undertone' to all these horrible fires.

Thanks to the environmentalists, the forested areas were allowed to build to "tinderbox" conditions.

Thanks to the nut cases, the "tinderboxes" are bound to become raging infernos.

Good luck and may the force be with you!

Politics?????

The politics of fire???

I don't think that you can point to "environmentalists" as having anything to with a fire burning in the chaparral.

And this one was started by a "pile of shit" literally. :wink:

Overpopulation (i.e. not letting natural fires do their thing) and an ever drier climate are probably the main contributors.

Yeah, but it's still a 'Catch 22.'

"Overpopulation" caused some folks to move OUT away from the cities.

But, were they ever safe? Living on the outskirts has disadvantages.

Who's supposed to be "taking care" of the Chaparral? Is that the BLM ???

(I was just looking at the big picture).
