.... Add to this that we have "firebugs", arsonists who start a fair number of the fires.

That's quite common here, too, osso. Bloody maddening & mind boggling!: all the misery & havoc these people cause for humans, livestock & wildlife!

My son had a college friend with a hobby of volunteering for fire fighting. He hoped to help in every state in the West before he turned thirty.

That's admirable, Noddy. Good for him!

My reaction was less enthusiastic--at least off the surface. Suppose my son had decided to go along with his friend to fight at least fourteen serious wildfires?

Thanks for that, osso.
A bit of hope & quite a bit of worry, still.
The prospect of some rain is very encouraging ... Now if that maddening winn would stop ....
