This California fire season is unusually scary. Early in the week, high winds whipped up massive, fast moving fires that consumed dry vegetation and in some cases wiped out entire neighborhoods. I’m very glad to see CALM conditions have appeared, so the fire activity is settling down a bit.
Wouldn’t mind seeing some nice rainfall hit though. I’m told it usually rains in the winter here. How does California winter work? I don’t know yet.
