WILDFIRES WREAK HAVOC IN CALIFORNIA

FITSNews – October 23, 2007 – America is on fire, people. And not in a good way.

Looking at this image from space, it’s hard to believe that only one person has died from the wildfires that now stretch hundreds of miles up and down the California coastline.

We’ll pray that California’s good fortune on that front continues …

The latest from the San Francisco Chronicle indicates that 200,000 acres covering 310 square miles are currently ablaze, and that over a quarter million Californians have been forced to evacuate their homes. Meteorologists say the conflagrations is being fed by high winds that build up in the Great Basin between the Sierra Nevada and the Rocky Mountains. Known as the Santa Ana winds, they often gust to hurricane strength, and in 2003 fueled wildfires that devoured over 700,000 acres.

Southern California is a freakin’ desert the last time I check. Lots of dry stuff that burns readily. Only idiots and Californians would build in a freakin’ tender box. Git over it.
