Northern California - Smoky

I've lived in Northern California since August-2000. I've experienced the following events that shook me up:

  • A 4.5 Earthquake that hit Napa in Aug-2000
  • Heavy rains cutting off I-80 near Fairfield, on Jan-1-2006
  • A major fire in my area that almost came near my apartments
  • A couple of small earthquakes, the latest a few weeks back
  • The current wild fires and smoke
I must say that this has been the worst till date. I wrote last week about the smoky sky and even posted a photo. Since then, the fires have grown and NORCAL is under a cloud of smoke. Health experts are asking us to stay indoors as much while recirculating the air at home.

Today, looks like another dangerous day with a lot of Lightening strikes predicted. I hope and pray we don't have any new fires.

I'd like to salute the fire fighters and other organizations who are on the lines fighting the fires.
