Thanks Guys. Power stayed on and WIFI went to hell in a handbag. Just came back on.
We are not outta the woods yet because only 17% contained and around 2 miles away ( across the freeways 5 and 14)
Wind has been blowing South which kept it away from us. FIRST time I had liked those Santa Anna winds. BUT...
changing directions today with an on shore breeze, now we can smell the smoke. If fire jumps the freeway we will get Evacuation warnings on our cell phone and not just the " Eminent Fire Warnings. " Which are spooky too.

Not my first Rodeo. Maybe got 7 fire warnings, 4 evac's. in the last 4-5 years. I got this down to a science now. No Worries.

It sure gets pretty tho....( when it doesn't reek havoc on anything but hillside brush. )

That picture from the stock footage from the newspaper.

Here is a real Super Scooper picture from the backyard .Love them GUYS !!!





ooh geezo...where did those go???

I have always thought that if our Governor ( then jerry brown ) stopped his nonsense on a silly Bullet train to NO WHERE ( THAT COST TRILLIONS !! ) and purchased some Super Scoopers from Canada, people would sleep better.
Now we rent them for a couple of months. AMERICA should be making them !!!!
Our new Governor is not worth the spit anybody can generate.

Rant over

Thanks Greg.
Maybe someday soon these fires will take this place out and I can move closer to you so I can ride my old bike. ( snickering..:EEEK )

Gotta work on my bummed up knees FIRST ! Still can dab the leg in the corners. Knees won't handle that. Stems before being old.

Always amazing Cali refuses to do basic forestry like every other state does to lessen wildfire!
My last tour of the northwest was shocking.the mountains were burned off so bad it looked like I was driving in Arizona.
Most of the old growth Forrest was completely gone from the fires.
