Default Calif fires again

Can hardly believe the Calif. fires are raging again, hoping all impacted families are safe.

Yup, every year at this time, the constant big winds arrive. High sustained winds are necessary for the fierce/massive damage that is often done. I've been in the middle of these fires as a younger man. While I've learned a lot from such experiences, there are a couple of lasting thoughts. I've learned that people of means can choose to and do live in areas that have been burned over/over again. I've learned to be thankful that I'm not in that category(my silver lining), or I might be living in the 'hills' above the masses also.

Lots of old cars are all over SoCal. Undoubtedly , some will be lost in these fires.

Earlier this week as I sat glued to Los Angeles tv news stations cover the various fires out there not too far away from my tinder dry mountain residence, before we lost power up here for two days, I watched in dismay as one film crew panned around the ashes of someone's property and caught a glimpse of the burned out shell of a rare fifties studebaker station wagon. That one collector car and likely many others now toast. Fire crews at the scene of a home reduced to rubble did manage to save a '65 Ford Mustang convertible left in haste in the driveway. The only damage I could see was a charred rf fender. The reporter referred to it as a "Chevy mustang". God help us all.

And they've had four earthquakes in San Diego area too.

We lived in SoCal for years, and it seemed each fall showed a pattern of Santa Ana winds and earthquakes. The experts said there was no correlation, but we didn't believe them. After the Northridge quake of 1994 that did so much damage, our company created a T-shirt: "Shake N Bake: First first the fires, then the quake." If we had waited a couple of months, we could have added the inevitable mudslides that follow in the scorched areas.
