California fires

Yesterday it was super-windy. Very unusual. Many areas had red flags for fire danger and, sure enough, this morning I see news of a terrible fire in Southern California.

And the same news show is saying that some North Bay owners are trying to sell their empty lots for 1/3 of the value after the devastating fires there.

So sad.

Very sad. Iím heading to So California today, looking forward to the warm weather but not those awful Santa Ana winds! I was hoping the rains would have started by now and the fire danger would be over.

I have a friend who lost everything in the Napa fire. She was originally going to leave but has decided to stay and rebuild. Maybe others will decide to do that too rather than sell at a loss.

They say the fire in Ventura county is the fastest moving fire they've had in over 30 years and as of a few hours ago it is zero percent contained. I'm 45 minutes north and we've been smelling smoke since last night, and the air was getting pretty bad by lunch today. I just pray the winds die down so they can get it contained.

My sister lost her beautiful home in the Oakland Hills years ago. To this day I can see the emotional toll it took on her . Everything lost;her daughter nearly lost and then the contractors took advantage of the victims.

smoke in my area today.... One should not be out. No word regarding school tomorrow. It will be bad for the kiddos and adults. My friend just got evacuated again because of the smoke. My SIL went to check on her house right before the Ojai area, and the smoke is bad. They had towels around their mouths. High winds are expected to kick in again.....
