Good to hear. Hopefully flooding won't follow like it always seems to do here in SoCal.

So glad to hear this. I wish I could have sent you some of our deluge from here. I hope the flora and fauna can recover.

they will but it takes time nature has a way of healing its own we just have to learn how and where she needs a hand maybe now the relevant authorities will carry out hazard reductions instead of doing s.f.a. Except for blaming each other when it hits the fan
