I saw that delivery on TV, syzygy, thanks for posting it here. Very poignant, wasn't it? It's been an absolutely horrible fire year in California, Oregon, Washington and British Colombia. The incidents in Santa Rosa and environs are the most shocking, because of their speed and ferocity, burning several populated areas to the ground almost simultaneously. Vulnerable people in the northwest of the United States and western Canada are feeling lasting effects from months of heavy smoke and, of course, higher than normal heat. A large percentage of those killed in Sonoma and Napa counties were elderly who were unable to escape in time.
Each year, fires are becoming more widespread, have ever more volatile fuel and are in such steep terrain that some will become nearly impossible to put out until, hopefully, nature provides rain and snow beginning in November.
hi D! thanks for response full of further informations, image and placemark on this!
yep, drought is hard! much more harder than "modern man" should think as living their everydays in their so called "developed world". (must stop here: I feel, I could say so many things now, still more I feel regret for those families)
*** here I insert an asking of a new member about whether anyone around here knows about some recent aerial datasource of burned areas.

frankmcvey: Hi, syzygy, that was a false alarm, old friend - it was caused by a Proboards admin accessing the forum to investigate forum ownership after Steve's passing. You may see TheLedge appear again from time to time, while while we continue handover/takeover.
