I've no idea what it's like because I've never been in the middle of a firestorm, but the pictures are a telling tale. I feel for those who've lost everything, and for the firefighters who have been at it for three days straight. Hopefully the winds will die down and it will be over soon. Such an ironic thing that some of these fires are only feet away from the largest body of water in the world. Maybe some day they will figure out how to harness the Pacific to be able to fight the fires more effectively.
