I used to live down in SoCal, in fact I was raised in Simi Valley, graduated high school, was married there, and moved back after living on a Marine Corps base for 4 years. I remember the last time it burned something fierce like this back in ’81. The problem is the fools who built houses on the hillsides! DUH, what did they think would happen. I KNOW…I really do feel bad for all those people who lost homes, but the builders should not have put them there. I have friends and family there, some have been evacuated, it is just terrible. My grandma is in Santa Clarita, and is worried sick that she will be evacuated with no place to go. She is in her 70’s, and I am just sick that I am too far away to help.
I am also rambling tonight, I have No idea where my husband is, and I hate to watch the news but can not help it.
Thanks for listening, I know you all understand. I know we all like the money that a good fire season brings, but lets pray for these fires to end. They are bringing too much suffering.
