What global warming?

We have a family member in Ventura on level 3, just across the street from full evac. We lost our own home to wildfire in 1994. Living here in e. Washington I know and sympathize with what you are going through. O my god - best wishes to all!

I passed through Ventura 24 hours ago and I did not see signs of the fire. It happened so fast.

who is really close to the fire, but he's confident it won't jump the 126. Fingers crossed for everyone out there.
