Fire Prevention Week - California Style!

As I was heading to Model Bakery the other day, I saw the most ironic banner I have ever seen. And yes, I stood in the middle of the road to get this money shot. My apologizes jerk old, rich lady that almost ran over me. Seriously, I am a journalist here......sorta.
I wish I would have taken a picture the night before, because the entire hillside was filled with bright, glowing flames! This is 24 hours after the fire started, and helicopters and airplanes are still dropping water attempting to fight the fire. After 300 acres burned, the fire was finally contained.
Luckily, this hillside wasn't full of grapes. But, it almost did burn down the entire city of Angwin, which had to be evacuated. Many thanks go out to my CIA pal Britny ( for getting this close-up of her former favorite picnic spot, and to the desert climate and winds of Nortern California that provided this story of dramatic irony.

Dude, you spelled my name right! Or should I say...wrong?? And great job posting my blog address as everyone can see how truly horrible and cynical I am.
