Oh yeah, the precursor to those infrared heaters that do jack shit. At least that thing gave off 60W of heat.

I'll bet I can find ours over at my dad's house. We used to love setting that up. I think we did at Christmas originally, but usually it just sat year round in the basement play room. Always out in the middle of the room, never up against the wall (see photo ), with a couple of bean bag chairs near it. It sort of served as a room divider, my sister's crap was on the other side.  The light bulb fixture was taken out of it pretty quickly because we'd left it on a few too many times and the cardboard was scorched. I read Kon-Tiki and Watership Down and Centennial and 100 other books with that in my peripheral vision.

The wife checked in a couple of hours ago with an update in her neck of the woods.  She is safe up in Lake Elsinore but her daughter's house in Menefee /  Murietta is a couple of miles from the new fire in Riverside County, the other new one just north of the Lilac Fire in SD county.  We don't know the name of this one.  Meanwhile Jennifer is in a nursing facility nearby after a couple of months stuck in the hospital and can't get anything out if she wanted to.  Her kittehs will be evacuated and taken care of.  She does have a fireproof box for birth certificates and what not like any smart Californian does.    Hopefully it gets contained quickly.

As if the ones up north weren't enough, the ones in Ventura and LA are the big ones we all worried about and hoped would never happen, like that big earthquake we are still waiting for ...  Praying for the best.  

These fires make me think about the Doors ...  I see your hair is burning ...  {#Meditate}

The woman quoted in the article, Nelda St. Clair, is the sister of my best friend. They were raised in a USFS-owned home up in the mountains; he committed suicide the summer after 7th grade. I don't see Nelda often, and always wondered if his death changed her own trajectory. It would appear so, but for the first decade at least, she was following a dangerous path.

America’s firefighting community is grappling with a troubling trend amid brutal fire seasons.

HoneyFire is reported as mostly contained.   Hopefully you have not been affected.   Situation in CA so sad.   People who have died, and so many others including friends who have lost houses.
