S. California Fires

I hope that all my friends out there near or close to the fires are okay.  My thoughts are with all those millions of people affected by the fires, and I hope there aren’t too many fatalities as a result.

My house is no where in close to Brea, but I hope and don’t think we are in any danger of the fires, but the areas near us are and the sky is an eerie hazy of smoke and ash.  It is raining ash and dust outside and the visibility is poor, as is the air.
