    My sister in law's in-laws are being evacuated from one of the fires out there.

    Stressful to say the least.

    I never understood why someone would want to live in that state.

    Nor Cal is beautiful and the only area I'd even consider. The big cities in the southern half can suck it.

    Awesome video. Pretty cool from our vantage point. Not so cool if you live anywhere near there.

    They could really use hurricane jimena to come in and dump some rain.

    Firefighters were keeping a close eye on the weather. Hurricane Jimena roared toward Baja California, but was not forecast to have much of a factor in firefighting efforts because it is expected to dissipate by the time it hits Southern California.

    My uncle lives up in the foothills of the Sierra's near Beale Airforce Base. I'd live up there in a heartbeat.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Re: Video of LA fire

    Trust me, once you spend one winter out here in Southern California its hard to remeber what snow felt like. Especially shoveling 2 feet of it off your driveway.

    I concur that the people in CA are a little odd but there are pockets of sane folks even in the big cities. (The Peoples Republic of Santa Monica, and The Peoples Republic of Berkely not included)

    Holy cow. I guess it does pick up at the end, wow! I wonder what the flashes are towards the beginning down at the base of the hills kind of in the center?
