B_rock mentioned the fires in his area around San Jose, CA. I just wrote my 'cuz and his wife south of SFran in Woodside; he's famously incommunicative, not into cementing family relations, but I'd rather send word, under the circumstances, than not. There are vast areas up and down California, into Oregon and Washington state and further east in Colorado, etc. By historical standards, the fire season has just started. I'm hoping my cousin and his wife have decamped to some safer area. sable' has mentioned the orange twilight that hangs over the L.A. area midday. How is everyone out west doing? In N.C. we recently danced with a hurricane and had a definite though minor earthquake that was strong enough to put the Dr. Grabow pipe factory out of commission, but nothing as compared to the inferno in he woods and brush areas (often inhabited) out west. I wish you safe passage in this dangerous time.
