extinguished, but muddy, fires slide; Tiger blocks and Arrow flies

Darius and Leandra and Christiane Jan 2018


First wild fires and then flash floods. So, who inverted the sequence? Why did Dan stock up on pesticide? (Hint: maybe pestilence is on the horizon.) What is more rare than water flowing in the ‘dry’ creek next to Dan and Nazy’s house? Is it possible for a three year old to construct a huge edifice out of blocks? The answer, of course is ‘yes’.

Ashes hanging out as fires cause mandatory evacuation

Who booked Nazy on an airplane with a 6:00AM departure? Was Darius able to find the airport early enough to drop her off? Who replaced Santa Barbara’s blue sky with soot filled ash? Why did hi happen while Nazy was gone? 200,000 acres is how many square miles? Why does it matter? Does anyone know the difference between a voluntary and a mandatory evacuation? Read More...
