Bad news from Southern California: Ventura County on fire

This is positively scary. It seems a massive wildfire hit Ventura County today in Southern California, prompting evacuations and a lot of losses to fire. An upsetting situation to be sure. I had tuned in the live coverage online earlier today and it looks like it will take a long time for this to get under control.

All in all, I am glad I am not in California right now; this is yet another reminder to myself to not live there.
