Would that artisan pot had taken over the napa valley rather than vineyards.
As a good person, I implore you to do as I, a good person, do. Be good. Do NOT be bad. If you see bad, end bad. End it in yourself, and end it in others. By any means necessary, the good must conquer the bad. Good people know this. Do you know this? Are you good?

Breaks my heart. One of my closest friends lives in Napa. Been keeping in touch with him.

I am so adjective that I verb nouns!
I have two projects in Napa, and many friends -- everything I hear is that it is chaos and destruction, many thousands are now refugees.

Horace -- you're up near Vallejo, aren't you? I know folks even down in South Bay with asthma problems being affected by the smoke. Ugh.
The dogma lives loudly within me.

Yeah we've been smelling it for the past few days now. Visibility on the roads was down substantially yesterday and a little today.

At work they're handing out smoke masks.

I lived in Rohnert Park, just south of Santa Rosa.
Some areas were evacuated, but fire did not reach the development.
Sonoma State Univ. (taught there as an adjunct in the 90's) is closed until the 16th. Students are encouraged to leave now, and were informed that if an evacuation is ordered they will not be allowed to use their cars, everyone will be transported by supplied buses.

The day we moved into our house in Rohnert Park, I remember looking at the hillside several miles away, where planes were dropping that red retardant on a fire. The hills in that beautiful area are steep, lots of tall grasses, trees, and yes, lots of vineyards.

And those vineyards were luxurious, shame to see such destruction.

Next time I am out in Napa - next year or so - you, me and Horace will have to get together.

Sounds fun! Not sure Rainman is still in this area though.

Even if these guys have insurance, this will take years to recover from. I wonder how many won't even try?

Yep. Total replanting, plus the bureaucratic difficulty of building ANYTHING in that area.
