Fill the land with smoke,
Run Through the Jungle
Credence Clearwater Revival
On the way into work this morning over I-580, I noticed that the entire Dublin/Pleasanton/Livermore valley was full of smoke. The smoke smelled of burning brush, which is a sure sign of a big fire somewhere. Hey, welcome to fire season in Northern California. The hills are alive...with the sound of cracklin' flames! Well, no, it's not that bad yet.
Finally, I came to the fire's origin. It is/was at the top of a hill at the top of the Dublin Grade on the north side of the highway. There was a helicopter with a bambi bucket, trying to douse the flames. Gee, I hope they get it under control before someone loses a home.
