#1 Notice when Texas gets hit by disaster, its some Californista saying its a message from God? Then again the Left is so deep in Freudian Projection, they'd never get the message themselves.

#2 I woke this morning thinking that maybe this perpetual disaster mode California is in might be God’s judgment after all.

Not to sound like a zealot but notice that at least one of the fires is right in the heart of the leftist fever swamp

We should pray for the souls of those who died.

#3 Fire is part of the deal in California. Y'all got your hurricanes, we got our fires...and earthquakes.

I think Trump is right to some extent when he blames poor forest management. Many of these fires are not in the kind of forests with tall trees but in scrub brush. Either way, fire is a part of the natural process. The seeds from some of these plants only germinate after a fire has swept over them. Fires clear areas where dead brush is too thick to allow for new growth. To control the fires, the dead brush must be cleared either manually (a lot of hard work involved) or by controlled burns that may be difficult to control.

Too many houses have been built in some of these fire prone areas with too little thought given to what happens when the fire starts burning. If you build a housing tract on the edge of a canyon where there is dense and dead or dry brush, don't act all surprised if some of those houses get burned. And don't be surprised if the insurance companies raise their rates. If the roads are inadequate, as they frequently are in California, escape becomes impossible because of the traffic jams.

It isn't God's judgment. It's just that shit happens and it happens a lot more often when you have morons like Jerry Brown running things.

#4 I've seen beetle-death trees not get logged out - Tahoe/Inyo/Cleveland forests and adjacent areas - seems to be better lately

#5 A lot of Hollywood sets have been destroyed. The only good thing about this ïnferno.

#6 Encouraging relatives of the dead to donate to the investigating authorities? Is the state that morbidly broke now?

#7 That would be donate tissue to make DNA matches.
