Still at 18,000 + acres
But I got a text alert last night . . .
70% contained . . .
The news said estimated containment is for next week . . . .
Thank the Gods.
I'm really disappointed in . . .
1. Burglars, looters and the variety of criminals that are sneaking into evacuated neighborhoods . . . .
2. A jerk who impersonated a firefighter to get behind containment lines & steal stuff . . . .
3. A variety of homeowners being interviewed who are pointing fingers and placing blame. Really? Our firefighters are real-life heros and they deserve nothing but thanks and respect. I'd really like to see these people who are bitching TRY to do better than our local heros did for them on Tuesday. One guy was complaining that his house was still standing, but damaged. He said his steps were torn away from his house and all of their patio rugs were thrown into the woods. And he said that some of their landscaping had been chopped to shreds. Really? Use your noggin, dude. The steps are wooden . . . they were ripped from your home so they didn't ignite and catch the whole house on fire. Your patio rugs are jute, and your landscaping is scrub oak! All of that "destruction" was done to save YOUR home!
But I'm encouraged by this, written in soot . . .
