  1. Yes, not funny. I thought climate change was a hoax, lol. Nothing of value, just my “Squalor South”, and a 40, cleverly disguised as a remote meth lab.

  2. I think it will be a very bad fire season for many States. Arizona didn’t have much of a winter from what family and friends told me, as we didn’t here in Southwest Idaho.
