The Station

The smoke cloud stretches at least from San Dimas through Azusa and Monrovia and Altadena and Pasadena and Glendale to Sunland Tujunga and reaches twenty thousand feet into the air. At times this morning visibility was less than one hundred yards driving through Pasadena. Two fire fighters died this afternoon fighting this almost fifty thousand acre conflagration.
On the anniversary of the landfall of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, we here in Southern California attest to nature's power and whim.

Do you believe it's nature for all these fires to break out around the same time duration?
