    Amen brother! This was a bad year for fires on the west coast. I was living in the Federal Way area of WA this past summer and you could see smoke trails from miles away.. The drive going down to Portland, LA, Eugene,Oakland, Santa Ana and other places to do shows was a bit scary as the smoke got into everything.

    To see all the homes that got destroyed as well as wild life, not to mention the influx of displaced homeless people at every out in the stix gas station off of the highway was sad. My heart goes out to anyone personally affected by the fires.

    Where I live (Indiana---Gateway to Illinois), it's always humid, if not raining. Aggravates my COPD something fierce. Of course, we don't get wild fires. Fair trade off. All of you in the flaming Left Coast be safe!

    Yes, scary! I am working on a transaction in that area (I am far away in Northern California). The surveyor had to vacate the offices. My client's kids' school was canceled. Scary stuff.

    My father came by tonight and bought me a new samsung 4k hd tv as a early surprise xmas gift to cheer me up tonight.. Me not having bought a tv in over 11 years and two remotes to control the darn thing, half hour of squinting at set up direction menu's because everything looks to zoomed in what do I see... A guy chasing a wild rabbit down the Ventura county road in order to save him.. Flames engulfing the whole area. I think I will wait to till tomorrow to do some couch surfing.. to late to exchange it for a mystery brain?

    All the wild animals will be wondering into peoples yards looking for water, be careful out there Cali friends!
