And it has been CRAZY WINDY with some DRY LIGHTNING. And CARELESS HUMANS.
Last year we had the Dog Head Fire in our neighborhood. We were all packed up and ready to evacuate. All irreplaceables were in storage. Dogs were kenneled. Cat crates were ready. Friends were ready to put us up. When I hear "2000 people evacuated," it has a visceral impact. Some of us live in flood plains, some in earthquake zones, There are tornado and hurricane alleys. Very few of us would live anywhere else.
BUT IT'S CRAZY DRY OUT HERE!
