    Well, not right now. But that’s the title of an excellent documentary we just watched on PBS. And it’s available via streaming right here: https://www.westisburning.org/

    It combines the outlook of forestry professionals, environmentalists, local communities, and loggers to tell the story of where we are right now, and what we have to do to get to where we want to be in terms of making our forests, and ultimately our communities, safer.

    One of the reasons it really hit home is that much of the fire footage and some of the interviews are from people in Sonoma County, just over the hills from where we live. And we know both the people and the communities.

    Despite the horrific impact of fires over the past few years, this film has actually given us a little hope that we might be able to turn this whole thing around. And that’s a very nice feeling.
