“It started as a beautiful day”

1.JPG Castaic Fire Update My long time friend Jeff Hailpern up in Castaic sent me this email and pictures a few minutes ago. He’s been on my mind since I heard there was a fire up in the Castaic area.

“It started as a beautiful day. Then some smoke on the horizon. The some smoke everywhere. Winds were clocked at 102 MPH early this morning. 102MPH……run Toto! “

Scary. It’s been a while since I’ve been around a wild fire. I wish him well as its no fun having fires in the area, especially when they are growing like this one. At least he can keep his sense of humor so you know he’ll be OK.
