Pretty horrific. Some important and historic wineries threatened and a couple reportedly loss, but that pales next to loss of life and entire blocks of homes destroyed.

So sorry to hear that, Bill. The devastation in Santa Rosa sounds bad
indeed. My relatives in the Bay Area are talking about the smoke from
the fires, but that's it.

Yes, over 1500 homes lost in Santa Rosa alone. The Silverado Resort was
completely evacuated, too. Most worrisome is that no one seems to have
heard from Lou and Betty Lu Kessler since this started.

That's terrible. I know a lot of people in that area especially wine
makers and have been emailing back and forth with several of them who
have lost property but the loss of life is really devastating.

Is there a fire in Lompoc as well. I thought that was where they were.

The news report I heard stated that a football field was being consumed by this inferno every THREE SECONDS. Stunning...

Nope. A FB friend has heard from Lou: they're fine, but had to relocate
10 mi S (sounds like to Napa proper). Like many others there, sounds
like they had to leave at a moment's notice.
