The only thing we can be sure of about the future is that it will be absolutely fantastic. So if what I say now seems to you to be very reasonable, then I have failed completely. Only if what I tell you appears absolutely unbelievable, have we any chance of visualizing the future as it really will happen.

Wow! Haven't seen similar pics since the 2003 BC fires and 2004 BC, Yukon and Alaska fires.
