    My husband starts his new job as a PE Mechanic at the Sylmar Hub tomorrow. Sylmar is 19 miles from Santa Clarita where a wildfire has been burning out of control for a number of days and has burned 30,000 acres. Ugh. Just when I thought I could stop worrying. Anyone here work at Sylmar? The roads aren't closed, of course he's going to work.

    By the way do you think her husband hit the jackpot or not by getting that job, with the consideration that there are wildfires nearby?

    Is post #7 photoshopped?
    If it's real wouldn't there be more tension on the muscles of the bicep area and forearm?
    Also the outline of the fish doesn't look real.

    Look at the location of the last two fingers in his hand and the space between the mouth of the fish. There is also space between the mans shirt and the fishes belly. This is 100% photoshopped.

    This fire can potentially reach the Sylmar hub by morning. The hub is on the other side of Little Tujunga/Bear Divide.

    Google Maps

    If you look at the terrain its all mountains so the winds will decide.

    It's a Democrat fish, so we can't call out any flaws.
