As you all have probably seen, the fires have kicked up in SoCal again.
This question is for those of you that grew up in SoCal, as I did.
Growing up in the 70's and 80's I remember the winds that would kick up in the Valley every year. I used to love running through the playground at school, spinning in the wind, using my jacket as a wind catcher while riding my skateboard.
But ... I don't remember the fires every-year like they have been for the past few.
Of course we had big fires, but it wasn't EVERY year, or at least I don't remember it being every year.
Has it always been this way, or is this something new.
