Mr. Hillbilly and I made a trip to the Rose Parade...a highly recommended experience..and stayed a few extra days to make some side trips along the coast. Just one week ago today, one of those side trips took us up into the hills of Santa Barbara county. We saw up close and in person the terrible devastation of the wildfires. The hillsides were charred and you could still smell the smoke. Now we read about and see videos of the disastrous mudslides in the areas we just took a leisurely drive through. We saw quite a few property "for sale" signs along the route. I wonder what those property owners will do now.

I'm not preachin'....I'm just sayin'!

They knew the risks when they chose to own property in that area.  Wild fires and mudslides have been a Califunny  phenomenon forever.  This is not an unforseeable consequence.  It's just more of that Califfuny thinkin.  Probably paid up their high risk insurance policies.  I don't feel sorry for 'em at all.  

Luv ya'll.

There's a lot of people out there living in at-risk locations and it's been going on a long time. The recent climate change has acerbated this. I remember a line that Johnny Carson cracked years ago: "Good news: The mud slides are putting out the brush fires."
You are the wind beneath my wings, otherwise known as turbulence.

They did know the risks and it has been going on for a long time, but that does not negate my feeling of compassion for those that have lost livelihood, property, lives of loved ones.
