PP Ep.13: The Santa Rosa Wildfire. A Boots On The Ground Tale.



I was lucky enough to get away from it all for a bit and talk with my good pal Zerb about the giant fire that's currently giving us major trouble here in good old Santa Rosa. Usually the PP is fairly funny or at least we try to be but this time around we took it a bit more serious. 


This is basically a boots on the ground news report of what's going on. I hope this helps to keep you a informed from a 1st hand perspective. My personal tale of escape is to follow on this week's TRU RPT. This is just a more general "What's going on over there" type thing..
