Cold rain and snow? Here comes sunshine?
What's Mother Nature up to at your house?
GRTUD et al,
we were in our own Dante's inferno of fire hell and back, but that was years ago, not now.
izzie, and everyone else in the So. Cal area that is affected by this terrible fire; positive vibes are heading your way, to all of your family and friends and, again, to all of the firefighters, people who risk life and limb. hopefully the gods of Santa Anna will cut the wind, and the rain will come.
There have not been any fires here this year, a few years back we had one thet come about 200 yards from the house, frightening

I am not in the firestorm as I live at the beach, but have been racing through three cell phones today trying to keep track of the 35 folks in my staff at work, several of home are facing the loss of everything material in their world. It is a very weird time in San Diego.
cold and windy.
cant wait for the first snow.
Thanks for that update, CCJoe! (GRTUD's hands tremble as he opens a Xanax bottle and liberally pours them into the funnel he now hold's in his mouth). In a garbled voice GRTUD continues, "Ah, Dante's Hell...", as he chews, swallows the pills and his eyes glaze over.
Thank you Walter, that makes me feel very secure, it makes me feel very warm inside.
positive vibes for the folks in firefighting and everyone in the area.
for anyone who has never been in the belly of the beast in a wildfire, consider yourself blessed because it is like being in Dante's inferno of hell.
What Steve-O said goes for me, as well, in regards to those terrible fires. I'm praying for any relief possible for you guys. The news can't do the situation justice, I'm sure, and yet the images and scope presented on TV and internet are terrifying to everyone here on the other coast. Everyone I know is concerned and pulling for the situation to turn for the positive.
The Dude Abides!
Sorry about the lives affected by the fires. Here in Erie, PA we had a very nice day, warm and dry. Just took my son for a walk in the stroller, I think he enjoyed it. Tonight the weather should turn more fall like accordinding to the forecasters. Rainy and much cooler for the rest of the week.
Here in Eastern Washington the skies are grey and the temperature is in the 40's and it feels damp. The hardwoods leaves are falling and some of the trees are getting bare and others are quite colorful. The rains have come and fire season here is over until next July or August. Always a bit of relief with that.
I know what you are going through in So. Cal. with the fires. A big part of our lives here.
If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, infinite.
I'm down here visiting family in Laguna Niguel till tomorrow, and while there are no fires in the immmediate area, there are at least 10 significant fires in SoCal, and the air is so thick with smoke you can barely see the houses across the street, forget the ocean.
I can only imagine what it's like in the actual fire area. My brother's a volunteer firefighter in Fallbrook, and consqeuently couldn't come to our family gathering yesterday.
