CalFire & KPOP
What do CalFire (California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection) and KPOP (Korean Pop music) have in common?
It’s just that both are on my radar now.
These are the folks who put out all those CA fires. We’ve only been in CA two summers, but there are a lot of fires — big ones — out here.
In the Midwest where we grew up, it was tornadoes. Out West, it’s fires.
The latest is the Owens River Fire just north of us in Mammoth Lakes. A few days ago it was a 500-acre fire, now it’s 5400 acres. We typically don’t learn about local fires from the news, but from our nose — we smell smoke. Last summer the smoke was as thick as fog from one fire. So far this year, not so bad.

Black Pink is the name of a KPOP group I’ve been following since 2012. They just debuted and they’re killing it.
