We had three scrub fires in Perth (northern suburbs) yesterday and the smoke has now made its way east and south. They need to do something stronger about arsonists. Pox on all of them.
Too many restaurants, not enough time...

We sent several engines from NorCal to SoCal. My brother is an engine captain and he missed spending Thanksgiving with us. He ended up eating at a McDonald's on Thanksgiving. But he did fight fire on the Malibu fire. He and the other engines he was working with did structure protection. Unfortunately, they still lost around 50 homes. He arrived back home yesterday and his girlfriend is going to cook a nice Thanksgiving dinner for him this weekend.

Have a good frien in San Diego, she was evacuated last time.
I can't imagine the fear of that happening to you. Good luck to everyone!
Not that there's anything wrong with that.....
