Yannow, if there's 2 parts of the world that are most similar in weather and fire conditions, it's Finland and Northern California.:hellokitty:

The Camp Fire burning in the Chico area of Butte County has grown to 149,000 acres with 55 percent containment. The death toll increased to 76 as five more bodies were found Saturday. The number of missing is 1,276, though officials indicated there are duplicate entries with different spellings on the list, and that many people may not realize they are on the list. The number of structures burned is at 12,794, of which 9,891 are residences.

Thus proving he is braindead and doesn't listen to anyone but himself.

It not only has happened before, it will continue to happen. It has nothing to do with forest mismanagement, and everything to do with extreme drought conditions and people living in places that are prone to disaster. The only way he could be right (and even a broken clock, yadda yadda), is a disaster of this magnitude has killed a lot of people. A lot more than we were prepared for.

And that's because the fire's ferocity and speed took everyone by surprise. It started in the morning, and by the time kids were in school that morning, they were being piled into teachers' cars and evacuated, because winds and dry conditions exploded that fire into a devouring beast.

Seriously. There are a shit load of plants and trees indigenous to this state that germinate only with fire. It's just the nature of the beast. BUT, climate change IS a contributing factor. We are two months into our rainy season, and the most moisture we've seen is some condensation on our vehicles in the morning. And that's only happened three times since September. Yes, I counted.

Trump can blow his forest raking out his ass. Finnish forest and California forests is apples and oranges. As far as I know, Finland is much, much wetter than northern California. They're much less likely to have devastation like this, because their climate is vastly different.

I can only hope trump falls into the caldera of an active volcano, because it's the least he deserves. Asshole.

The Camp Fire burning in the Chico area of Butte County has grown slightly to 150,000 acres, a slowed growth that may be a sign firefighters are gaining the upper hand on the blaze. It is now 65 percent contained. The death toll now stands at 77, and will likely continue to rise as more bodies are discovered in the burn area. 13,774 structures have burned, 10,364 of them being residences. 993 persons are still declared missing.

So maybe this is some evil plan he had to trick another wave of migrations of Finns here? This time with rakes?

The Camp Fire in the Chico area of Butte County continued its trend of slow growth, growing to 151,272 acres, while containment increased to 70 percent. The death toll from the fire increased as well, now at 79. 699 people still remain in missing status. 15,573 structures are now being reported as destroyed, 11,713 of them residences. Rain is expected in the area Wednesday, which will help with the firefighting efforts, but will hinder body recovery efforts and trigger mudslides in the area.

And my personal favorite: He called Paradise "Pleasure". Not once by mistake. Not twice. THREE times. The guy is a dunce. He won't listen to people. And when he was corrected, he actually had the gall to be irritated by the correction. He. Does. Not. Care. Gavin Newsom is smart, though. It's clear from his body language that he doesn't trust Trump, and would love nothing more than to throw down physically with that lump of lard.

Fuck Trump. Fuck him and everyone who voted for him, supports him, or works for him. Fuck them all. I hope they all die horribly.

Oh, Butte County is expecting rain tomorrow. That's the good news.

The bad news is they're expecting up to 4 inches of rain. There's a flash flood warning in the burned areas, starting tomorrow when the storm arrives.

Yeah, it's going to be like watering a house plant with a firehose. That much rain is going to cause some terrible mudslides. Plus, all that water mixing with all that ash is going to make cleanup and recovery extremely difficult.
