A couple of years ago my brother nearly had to evacuate from his condo in Thousand Oaks. He sent me a picture with flames he took out his window.

Every year it seems the western states seem to burst into flames. Most of this is human caused… both starting fires needlessly, as well as fighting fires too aggressively that causes fuel to build up way too much.

He’s out here now.

As am I.

My co-workers are sending pictures of nighttime during the day and red skies.

Today my sky here was blue.

I’m so happy that I’m not dealing with this nonsense.
