    It's That Time Of Year Again...

    Every year, southern California deals with "fire season". Well, it looks like it started yesterday.

    This was about a mile and a half from our house. Thankfully, fire fighters and air assets were on it in a hurry, and kept it from being much worse. This same area burned back in 2003.

    Anyway, here are some photos I grabbed late yesterday afternoon:





















    We're surely going to have more fires here this year but, hopefully, this is the closest one gets to us...

    Man, I wish!

    Nope, it's fire season here in SoCal...

    Hope your home stays safe this season.
    We were evacuated back in 2003, and stayed with my brother in law. In 2007, my wife's folks were evacuated and stayed with us. We call it "Evacuation Lottery", because we know there's a good chance of someone having to leave their home, we just don't know who!

    Scary looking circumstances, but you got some great shots out of it. Hope all ended well.

    It did.

    After 2003, our fire departments seem to respond to these things really quickly. We had one fire get out of control in 2007, but those things will happen when fires start in the back country.

    For the most part, though, our fire departments are money...
