    Iti used to be in SoCal our fire season was in November. Now it is almost all year round. Sometimes it's hard to imagine a fire so big it's destroying towns and cities. When you think it's only Sept and they are talking about maybe the end of the year to get the fire out. Our fire dept. now has a fleet of converted Blackhawk helicopters for firefighting. They can fly at night and in times and places other helicopters can't. Part of the problem is for years people wouldn't let the forest service clear out the dead pine trees. They have a bark beetle. You can now see all the brown trees in pictures. When they dry out and fall they're like having paper laying around in the woods The ones still standing but brown are so flammable they go up like a roman candle.
    In my tract we have a lot of firefighters or firefighter families so there are a lot of the Thin Red Line flags out in support of them.

    Yeah - It's depressing to see the our planet literally being slowly destroyed in front of our own eyes. Our world leaders better wake up and begin dealing with climate change because it's not going to get any better if we don't.
