I hate that Mount Diablo caught fire again. I hope it's not like the one 30 odd years ago. We had lots of Racoons in our yard last night and I don't want anything else coming down the Mount.

Miss Gwen, annomia in bowls with sponges make racooms stay away. Raccons hate the smell of amnonia. Racoones hate the color orange. Can I paint your house orange? That will keep the racoons from making you mad. I like orange.

Walking around the neighborhood with my 6 and 2 year old girls, just saw a Coyote crossing the street and heading to a nearby hill. What a sight! Got a video on my iPhone. Very cool, I don't think he noticed me but still...kind of scary. My 6 old start screaming look daddy, a wolf, a wolf!

Oh yeah, the relation to the article is that I believe he was running away from the fires? Watch out for food or small pets in your backyard!

The Article lacks details, how did it start, contained does not mean out. Impact, what should we as neighbors expect from this fire. What type of injuries did our brave fire fighters contract. Do we get a follow-up story? Will this impact use of the park?
