    The joys of western living...

    So I'm sitting here in scenic Lancaster, CA...have had 2 separate wildfires within viewing distance of my house and have friends out here possibly evacuating due to the fire. And this is just the start of fire season...

    [Updated] 2 brush fires break out near Antelope Valley Freeway | 89.3 KPCC

    Tehachapi fire burns 20,000 acres, is 25 percent contained - CSMonitor.com


    Going to enjoy heading back to the plains that don't light up at the first mention of the word "fire".

    If you really want to escape the threat of wildfires move north of the arctic circle. There are no trees and snow covers the landscape most of the year which is not conducive to wildfires.

    That's true, but watch out if you think Fairbanks (2 hrs south of the arctic circle) is far enough north. We have forest fires up here every summer.

    So, then I guess you need to move to Antarctica? I can't imagine them having many wildfires.
