    It looks like it's going to be a very bad fire season. I'm safely several miles away from the Sand fire which is in the Santa Clarita area. It's at 5,500 acres burned so far and zero containment. The fire is northeast of me but the entire sky is affected. To the north and east all I can...

    Two More Fires

    Two new fires burning several miles south of me. They are within a few miles of each other. Strong dry winds are not helping and neither is the high heat. Just stepped out onto my front porch and the reading was 110 in the shade.

    Another Fire

    We got thru the traditional fire season with very little in the way of fires. Now I'm looking out my back window and the entire sky is smoke. There is a large fire in Calabasas. I'm not in danger but a lot of homes are. I'm watching the TV and flames are very close to homes. Way too close.

    We've had coverage of three new fires today. The latest being by Castic. That is a very rugged area. Temps are 100+ and winds are blowing. Perfect conditions for a very large and fast moving fire. Add in the terrain and this one is going to be a bad one. The only good thing is that a lot...

    Not a fun situation but at least it's treatable. I have too much iron in my system. Among other things I get really tired. Treatment is to take a pint of blood out of me when the iron level gets too high. Doc has decided that I need to do this every six weeks. I hate needles!
