    I'm not sure how much they are in the national news at this point, but man the CA fires are getting scary.

    40,000 people are under mandatory Evac from the Santa Cruz Mountains - We know the fire went through Big Basin - which has 1000+-year-old Redwoods

    My family is all safe, although the EVAC area for the CZU fire is getting close. The fire would have to jump a creek and an 8-lane freeway to get here.

    Scotts Valley - home of Canepa is under mandatory Evac, along with the rest of the Santa Cruz Mountains.

    For the Record We are ok and it's very unlikely to have a problem
    I know our members down in the Salinas area (who shall remain nameless unless they choose to speak) are ok right now, but the River fire is VERY close to their home

    I'm more near sac, but the ash is thick, I see it on my front yard every day

    Really don't want to see the redwoods burn down

    Yep another from SoCal here. Fires are about 15 miles away. Here's a pic from the front door of my brewery when the Azuza fire broke out. 20200813_164347.jpg

    This was sad to see this area burn , The Mojave National Preserve in Death Valley . Thousands of old growth Joshua Trees destroyed . I've been to this area many times over the years and now it's gone forever

    I feel bad for you guys out there. It's just too bad we as a nation cannot come up with a way to pump water in from a big azz ocean to put these fires out being the water is so close. Sometimes we are our own worst enemy. Take are all of you guys and I hope you don't lose anything to the fires.
