Nature Points Out The Folly Of Men

This was fun, esp. on the big(ger) screen. Burn baby burn!!
The tree lit up like a tall matchstick after it struck power lines at the intersection of Venice Boulevard and South Mansfield Avenue in the Mid-City area of Los Angeles. Several gusts during a night of powerful winds sent a storm of embers into the street and across nearby properties, sparking a few rubbish fires.

Disappointment Ed.:
Probably the closest we'll see to a giant flame-breathing monster in (recorded) actuality.

I've seen a couple go up in actual reality; not nearly as spectacular. Drought, maybe.

I was thinking of a blog post titled "History shows again and again how nature points up the folly of man" just the other day!

Probably Smut Clyde's fault (IF that's his real name!).
