All contained and it was out this morning. It's something we always have to be aware of, in S CA, but it's scary when it's so close, just two streets away, over the main road.
Slightly over 2 years ago , this fire devastated a large area off central Portugal

Fire is a threat we constantly live with here , the main problem & cause why they spread so quickly are the massive Eucalyptus Plantations
that dominate the forested land,
The second is the "crazies" who get there rock's off by starting them.

It's amazing how hot and fast eucalyptus goes up in fire. So. California has eucalyptus all over as well, some regions one of the most common trees around.

2 flats in one of my favourite houses in Buda have come up for sale - & sold very quickly, before I had a chance to make a move...

My friend quietly died far far away whilst I slept.

Goodbye my friend. At rest now.
