Oct. 21, 2017 Land Of Chimneys

Driving through Napa and Santa Rosa California I am struck by acres of chimneys stretching to the horizon. They survived the fire, but will still have to be knocked down and rebuilt for the next one. One former resident wonders what is the point of building a house or owning property? Why bother if it is just going to burned in fire, flooded in a hurricane or leveled in an earthquake?  We have to find a better way to house people.
