California Fires 2019

Almost exactly a year (and two weeks) after writing a blog entry about the 2018 California fires, more are breaking out and the dry October winds we tend to get are certainly not helping . There are probably a few officially labelled fires, but the two I'm reading about are the Kincade Fire, because its closest to me, and the Tick Fire near Los Angeles. Unlike last year's fires which came too close to comfort, we are at no risk from the Kincade fire. Unfortunately many people (39-50,000 depending on which news outlet you read) are at risk and being asked to evacuate. It's completely heart wrenching that this is happening again, and absolutely frustrating when the source of both fires are take into account. I don't really want to point figures, that's a job for someone else and I have no doubt it'll happen down the line, I just hope that everyone is able to evacuate safely.

Also want to give another huge shout out and thank you to the thousands of fire fighters (and inmates, according to the BBC) across the state working to contain the fires. With tonight's wind gusts expected to be up to 70 mph they have a major uphill battle, but we're all rooting for them. These brave heroes don't get enough credit, and no thank you is big enough for all the work that they're doing. My thoughts and prayers are with them and the victims.

Boo.  Stay safe man!  (What's funny is I saw a lot of people out burning stuff in their yards today.  Even tho it's fairly damp here right now, it still looks risky to me.
