There are patches of choked understory oak woodlands throughout the area. There are really quite a lot of homes in them because that is the only shade during the extremely hot summer and fall months.

I'm struggling. I hate human stupidity — decades of agency mismanagement — for not spending every penny on fuels removal in those woodlands, leaving it to wildfire, but when the wildfire comes to burn it all down it's a terrifying RELIEF... even though too temporary.

Because, after all is said and done, it's the agency pinheads and politicians who live through it every time.

pipe up any time....
