do you guys think this will be a regular thing, with the wind issue?
Or will it happen just this one time, and that'll be the end of it?
It happens every fall and has for the last tens of thousands of years. In SoCal they're called the Santa Ana winds (or some say the Santana (Satan) Winds.) It's just that now, climate change is causing dry brush and dead trees (bark beetles and other insects.) Plus more people and more power lines.
They have been very proud of saving old growth and that lead to a general mis-management of their forests.
