The fire in Alpine CA came within a half mile of my sister's home last year. That's the fire that wiped out much of Julian.

You know, thirty-five to forty years ago they allowed grazing of the grasslands and forested area and the sheep and cattle ate the grasses. Now there is no grazing allowed, so the grasses become fuel for the wildfires. I guess progress for the environmentalists is to create the conditions for wildfires.

I hope and pray that she and everyone else will be similarly spared again this year. Unfortunately, Government entities such as the Bureau of Land Management and the U.S. Forest Service appear to be more interested in politics and bending to the whims of "environmentalist" radicals than in protecting good and decent people from a truly horrific death from fire.

We had last years fires come within 5 miles of us. One good thing...your sister has burn area around her now...can't burn this year. She should be safe. I shudder to think what this year holds for us.
