Safe from California fires ?

I know we have a lot of California Pacifica owners on the Forum. When I have seen a map of California and I see all the fire locations that seem to be all over the map, I hope and pray that everybody is OK...

I'm not near any of the big fires but we did have a 300 acre fire knocking at our door. Thank you fire fighters for all your brave work.

Wishing everyone the best as well. We get tornadoes, floods, and the occasional earthquakes too (thanks New Madrid), but rarely at the same time. I know you didn't ask me, sorry.

I have see many videos of planes dropping fire retardant on fires, but is that an actual undoctored photo of the plane dropping fire retardant in that neighborhood ???

Ya, that's a real unedited pic. There were two of those jets flying super close to the ground then going full power to pull up. Those pilots have some real big ones. There were 2 small sheriff choppers, one big sky crane chopper, 2 dozers and many ground crew. We dropped off some cases of beer at the local station to thank them for saving our houses.

We have never had any fire damage but we have had some large fires around us in the past. Ash falling from the sky and the awful smell of smoke are two of my memories. Hope that you and others will stay safe and let's hope the fires will be put out VERY soon.

We got the absolute best lying, cheating, crooked politicians in the USA! Tornadoes we got also!

Note that we keep tripping over alligators when we go to Florida each winter. It's a minor inconvenience.

You folks in the hot zones of California, BE SAFE! My brother lives in Orange County, CA. He tells me no fires yet in his area, just desperate housewives.

Webster, NY is a suburb just east of Rochester, NY and we can't complain about weather.
It seems the rest of the USA gets damaging weather where we can inconvenient weather.
We had 1 tornado 1936 very minor damage, earthquakes that measure 1 to 2 on the Richter scale maybe once every ten years.
We get 85 inches of snow per year! Sometimes it seems to come all at once. We also have ice storms which wreak havoc on trees and power lines.
Like I say inconvenient weather not damaging.
It seems all of western US is on fire.
You are all in our thoughts and prayers!
Stay safe!
