LA Burning and Most of California

August and September are traditionally bad months in California's notorious fire season. The last few years seem to be getting increasingly worse, can anyone say global warming. Fire is a devastating natural disaster that is not easy to recover from. My heart goes out to those that have died, been injured or lost property. I know the trauma a disaster like this can cause as my sister-in-law and her husband lost their home in Poway, Ca in 2003 and almost lost it again in 2007.

However, what does god have to do with the fire? God certainly isn't helping to put out the fire by reducing the heat and wind. I know maybe God started the fire, after all he works in mysterious ways.

In an AP article today
Fire crews battling the blaze in the Angeles National Forest tried desperately to beat back the flames and prayed for weather conditions to ease."
Also, quoted in the article is U.S. Forest Service spokeswoman Dianne Cahir who said,
"If you have any insight into the good Lord upstairs, put in a request."
So, much for the secularism in U.S.F.S.

And again my heart-felt sympathies go out to those affected by fire throughout California.
