    I was surprised at how many controlled burns I saw driving up the 395 to Bridgeport last month

    It's a double edged sword. Without vegetation, when it does rain, the soil slides off the slopes.

    I see the fire is headed for Chico which is now under an evacuation order.

    I woke up this morning to hear that a family friend lost their place. Sorry to hear that you were caught up in it too.

    Look on the bright side of things, you can start again from zero. I know some people who would trade places with you. They're looking for the reset button and they can't find it

    Really sorry to hear that, man. At least you have your family intact. Everyone is safe. That’s the most important thing.

    All you fucking so called environmentalist building house after house on hillsides. You wonder "why are our houses always burning"? You destroy the ecology with all your houses. Your carbon footprint is gigantic but you feel better blaming others for global warming. Go fuck yourselves. Also, I bet you a sandwich the fire was set by a homeless person cooking ramen noodles in the bushes.

    That sucks, fam. But at least you have each other. It's going to be rough for a while but hopefully it gets better.

    When I was real young my family moved from Dade to Broward counties like right before Hurricane Andrew, and our old neighborhood (Country Walk for the aware) was completely leveled. All our old neighbors made it out alive and with yuge insurance checks (and iirc proceeds from a nice legal settlement with the builders) and I remember wishing we would've waited a few months to move; all our belongings would've been destroyed but all I saw were $s lol

    I guess my point is, like others have been saying, what's really important is that the irreplaceable (lives) is still there for you and the rest is disposable and can be replaced. And sometimes, picking up the pieces and starting over can be for the better. Andrew's destruction compelled our closest friends in Country Walk to move up to Broward County near us and to this day they say they're thankful for the move and it would've never happened but for the hurricane
