A friend lives in the mountians that were part of the "Station Fire" north of Los Angeles. 11 of the 13 homes near his, burned to the ground. His home survived with only some blistering of paint from the heat. His mailbox was not so lucky.

This picture is amazing in all its aspects apart from telling a disheartening story that goes far beyond words and images...those mailboxes with their mouths open and their burnt words looks like dying fishes out of the water in a background so surreal and yet so real, like life itself.
You friend was the only positive note in this pic, he was blessed by luck.
