California Burning

Suddenly, bursitis doesn't seem to be such a bad thing after all; at least my world isn't going up in flames. Yes, a lot of the people displaced have the financial means to recover, but the trees, the landscape, the wildlife will take many, many years to come back (like 40 or 50).

I'm also thinking of those who may be homeless hiding in those hills---what will happen to them? And the migrant workers, watching their livelihood literally "going up in smoke." What will happen to all those people?

My cousin in Thousand Oaks is ok so far, but she already lost everything in a house fire years ago, and I don't want her to go through it twice.

It just makes me cry. :(

I saw a woman on TV, looking for her dog... she was crying and I started crying too. :(

Oh the pets! Remember in Katrina, how many people refused to leave without their pets? I'm sure there are people like that in the fires. I know I couldn't imagine leaving without my critters...

This is way off topic, but I'm afraid it will buried in the months-ago "Ginger" thread if I post it there: Some Neanderthals may have been REDHEADS!
