A place to call home, if only for a night. A vacation, unplanned. A week, a month, this season. Until next year, one day, some day - way in the future. A new place, a new beginning, a transition.
Chico and Paradise; Redding and Old Shasta; Montecito; Malibu and Topanga Canyon; Napa and Santa Rosa Wine Country - all these communities transformed in recent times - due to wildland fires.
Burnt, down... to the ground. Whole towns being wiped out by fire. Usually news stories of yesteryear, pioneer and mining days. But now here it comes again. History repeating itself. Mountain towns are particularlly vulnerable to wildfire, along with mountain highways, but metro urban areas are also susceptable.
Hundreds of Californians lost their lives during the recent wilfire season. Wild winds, a force of nature, plus sparks and dense brush often means out-of-control wild fires. Every year becoming more common and severe. More deadly, more costly, more forested acres GONE. Thousands of Californians lost their home (primary residence, rental apartment, trailer spaces). Most left only ashes. Many will never return. Planning to rebuild, relocate, regroup or who knows, just moving on.
