Over the last several days our photovoltaic system was installed and right now we're making electricity. Solarize SLO was a group purchasing program offered this summer to go green. We signed up and now that we've solarized our all electric house I'm looking forward to a whole lot of cooking and baking over the long dark days of fall and winter.
Yesterday, our friend Jerry and family were ready to evacuate from a wildfire behind their house. Luckily the conditions were right and the fire burned away from their home. Cal Fire were in "full wildland dispatch" and used ground crews, helicopters, and air tankers to control and contain the Toro Creek Fire. Scary. We haven't had enough rain to quench the dry landscape so we still need to keep up the fire vigil.
