What tragedy. I live 45 miles south of Napa. Yesterday the Sun was almost block out by the smoke. You could hardly stand to breath here. Today the winds shifted and clear as a bell. Some might remember this happened in 1992 in the Oakland Hills. That was 1500 hundred acres 2500 homes. It lasted two days. This is in it's fourth day and 170,000 acres and growing. God bless the people who perished.

I hear they are saying it's going to get worse before it gets better. If I was living in the region, I would put all our important stuff in one place to grab in case we would need to leave quickly.

Keep safe everyone!

Peanuts creator Charles Schulz's house is gone. His widow just made it out before it burned to the ground.
