and if you're worried about people in Southern California, from Ventura south to San Diego... like me, send beer, and pizza. With enough beer and pizza we can survive anything and put out fires either with the beer, or after we drink the beer. We're tough like that
this next video tries to explain, but isn't very informational. For example, what are Santa Ana winds? Hot air from the deserts east of California, from Nevada and Arizona, have NO moisture in the wind, and it's hot air, so... imagine a big blow dryer aimed at a fire, now turn up the speed on the blow dryer to 60 miles an hour, and imagine the blow dryer is the size of a mountain range 500 miles long.
Now imagine that the entire west coast of southern California is made of newspaper that has been sitting in the sun all summer long. ... and turn that hot blow dryer on it for a week. Now imagine that sparks are being dropped on it everywhere.
And now, you have the idea of what happens EVERY YEAR in southern California.
