Sorry no snow. US border guards are not known for their sense of humour anyway.

Thomas fire about 300,000 acres so far
Fort Mac fire (2016) 1,500,000 acres - but mostly impacting a much less densely populated region.

Back to LAX from Mexico I could not tell how things are going. LA smog looks about how it always looks.

Cousin was fine. She was living elsewhere and just up in Fort Mac for work. Depressed oil prices and a big chunk of oil production went offline up there (on account of the fire) and so she has since left the industry.
