This is the biggest pile of steaming crap ever! I live in Sacramento, CA area. We have an ordinance I just became aware of. There have only been 4 legal burn days in December while temperatures have dipped below freezing! Found a citation hanging on my door knob this morning. Appears we have roaming smoke detectives wandering around at night. I'm supposed to complete an online wood smoke awareness course at a cost of $50. Second offense results in increase fines. So there you have it, bureaucrats drive up the costs of electricity and gas and then force you into using more of the utilities under threat of financial penalties.
