Another m;ajor fire in Sou Cal
There is a major fire – been burning approx 2 hours or so – burning like crazy in the Cajon Pass – that is the major Freeway (SB 15) between San Bernardino and on the way to Vegas through Victorville. Five homes have burned and 70 to 80 vehicles abandoned in the middle of the freeway and at least 7 of them burned – people just abandoned them. Scary. Sad thing is yet ANO"THER stupid drone delayed the fire fighting planes – AGAIN. We had a fire within a few miles of me a few days ago and the firefighgers had to wait a good10 minutes because some idiot was flying a drone there – that is a lifetime when fighting a fire – before beginning, as those dumb drones can take a huge plane down. Not like flying a model plane which are fragile and can only go to far up – these drones go up in the level of the airplanes. I hope they get a law that forbids flying those interfering things and the people who fly them – where are their brains??
Needless to say, these fires terrify me and I have lived here long enough I have seen more than my share. There is no way to explain how you feel as you never know which way they will turn.
Not helping is excessive heat today – so very hot. We had 64 degrees this morning and where I am it is 103 now. Enough is enough.
Say prayers and hopefully some rain will indeed show up perhaps tomorrow – or Sunday..
Ooops I sure made a typo in the title. Sorry about that. But am amazed no one seems to be interested in such a devastating thing – to a part of the country which has already suffered miserably with a drought – and now this. Live and learn. We did have some rain today however.
