WILDFIRES IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA This is the season for wildfires; unfortunately Northern California has two wildfires burning. Santa Cruz Mountains are on fire again, just last year we had the Loma Prieta fire. Another fire burns near the Altamont Pass, threatening I-5 and I-580 East of Livermore. The Lockheed fire caused 2,400 residents to evacuate from the communities of Swanton and Bonny Doon. I hope Cal Fire can get this fire under control for all the evacuees, because loosing your possessions in a fire is devastating. The air quality is poor in the areas where the fires are burning. California is a dry state; it doesn’t get much rainfall so wildfires are common. I guess this is one of the prices we have to pay to live in this beautiful state. Lynn
