January 2018 Third Week


Sonoma Fires Three Months Later

Our neighbor across the way who lost the house he recently owned in the Fountain Grove area of Santa Ana, took several of us on a little tour of the fire damage.  After three months, recovery is slow because of all the hazardous toxins that must be removed from the soil.  Nature is doing her part to soften the damage by regrowth, nevertheless the damage remains stark.
