http://www.ktla.com/landing_news/?State-of-Emergency-Declared-as-Wildfire-=1&blockID=135724&feedID=171 The Santa Ana winds are here and fire season begun weeks ago. True to form, the San Fernando Valley catches on fire and blazes out of control. This has been going on for at least my entire life. You'd think they'd somehow invent something that they could lay on the grounds that would help prevent fires from starting or at least spreading. Lofty goal, I know. That said, I only just found out about this as I was leaving to go to Valencia for the day. Turns out I won't make it there as all of the freeways appear to be closed or restricted to residents only. I only hope between this and Santa Barbara people are as safe as they can be.
