Report from Los Angeles


Not as smoky up in Los Angeles, but you can barely see the ocean this ship floats on.
I snapped this picture at the wheel. The unfocused foreground blobs are ashes on the window.

Faint amber tint to the lighting in the front yard, but not much ashes.

The color and light is beautiful in your fire pictures, just so sad to think of its cause.

This seems so unreal, but I know it isn't. I'm so sorry.

We're just so relieved our cousin in SB is all right.

Hi Linda, Sally and Stray,
Big fires bring a strange dichotomy to the area. The average person complains about the smell, ashes all over everything and the bad air. Then there's the people who really have something to complain about because their home and every comfort, convenience and momento inside it has been destroyed.
The smoke came my way, but the flames were far away (national news sometimes played it up like the whole county was burning). Still, I was glad to have a home to go to at the end of the day.
