Where I live in San Diego, we have had terrible fires over the last several years too, not a severe as the ones recently in Australia, but equally terrible for the ones affected by it directly. We were spared the number of deaths, but the loss of some homes has not been paid for because they were under insured and some insurance companies were not licensed to operate in the state and just left their clients hanging. We are lucky to not be affected by them, but the fires got much closer than was comfortable and made us worry that we could have been caught up in the destruction too.
We have decided that we don't want to move to France; it is far too cold and overcast for 9 months out of the year. San Diego is where we have our home and we will visit France in the summer, but live in San Diego for the balance of the year. We would love it if he and his wife joined us.
