Fire everywhere, again

Well, it's that time of year again.

I was really hoping we'd dodge the bullet this year, but California is on fire, again. This time, the fire's are a little to close to home.
We had an apartment complex burn down yesterday morning, and now a big grass fire burning down a section of one of our highways.
And the air quality today is just
And most of the Southern State is on fire, too.

Fire sucks. I said it last year. I repeat it this year.
I know, it's nature's way of clearing things out, things go back greener, ect. ect.
Seen it first hand at my parents house.
But, tell that to the people who lost their homes, and important stuff over the weekend.
Fire sucks...

(so how are you all this Monday? :)

and once again I wonder WHY the Californian legislature doesnt enact some law that requires home owners to keep trees/shrubs 'x' distance from their homes AND keep things wetted down at this time of year ... its not as if these fires dont happen every single fall.

I hope everyone stays safe

Sucks indeed.

I think those laws are there, Daryl? At least suggestions - I know my parents keep a firebreak around their house. But, they don't have the water rule - which would not only be hard to stay on top of, but be not good for the drought conditions.
