My feed is full of fire articles and I haven't tweaked any kws.

Don't go to L.A. 

Also, fire 16 miles from Burning Man. I didn't know playas could burn.

My brother in law and his family are in Montrose and the La Tuna Canyon fire is getting a bit too close for comfort.

One of my kids is on her way to Disneyland and just took this pic from 101.

If you ever plan to go to "Southern California" make it Orange County. Fly into SNA

Firefighters in California were battling 19 large wildfires statewide, officials said Sunday, including a brush fire that was being called the largest ever in Los Angeles.

In all, more than more than 12,000 pairs of boots were on the ground battling the fires, and temperatures on Sunday were up to 20 degrees hotter than usual.

It was 109 degrees at the coast, 106 in SF -- like the state has been thrown into a toaster oven.

New fire broke out in our county today. That's four significant fires that currently or recently resulted in evacuations (3/4) or road closures (4/4). And to top it all off, another road closed for a few hours tonight because a tree fell on a car

Getting a little tired of the completely over the top reporting... so I made a couple of news videos. Here's the first one

Those were enjoyable Tom.  Also, it's good to know what you sound/look like.  I have a tendency to build an image my head of people from reading their writing.  I was pretty far from the mark.

First off, I don't believe there is such a thing. As my variation of the WC Fields quote goes: I've spent half my life wandering around lost in the wilderness, and the other half I wasted.

They didn't take long. The only part that took any time was making the inset photo that "melted" Half Dome.

But basically, the genesis of those is that Theresa wanted to test the microphone on her SLR and her iPhone and told me to start speaking, so I did, and I was feeling a bit ranty regarding the way certain things get covered.

The plus side of bad media coverage: the best time to come to Yosemite is typically any time the media is telling you it's dangerous. Spent the day tooling around the Valley, with ample parking everywhere. Very pleasant day. As opposed to when the media reported (falsely) that the waterfalls were the biggest they had been in 30 years.

  I was pretty far from the mark.

Yes, I've been told I'm much taller in writing.

I used to play that game with our rental guests. Now that we're up to several hundred over the years, I have yet to come close once. I try now not to build a picture, but it's hard not to.

You project more grit than I imagined.  Somehow I pictured a little curly haired guy with a mustache and more of a vegan type of build.  Sorry.

Ha ha! Though not a vegan, I *am* sadly acquiring a vegan build. I found some body measurements I took in 2000 to be the "before" state because was so out of shape at the time, and my thighs are 1.5" smaller than my "out of shape" measurements in 2000. The mustache ain't gonna happen though.
