Apparently CNN and its ilk are reporting that L.A. is on fire. It sort of is, but the greater L.A. area is approximately the same size as three or four New England states with D.C. thrown in.
I live on the beach, which is almost never directly affected by wildfire. All I’m getting are record high temperatures with no A/C and some monstrously bad air quality. There’s a plume of smoke hanging over the entire city that looks like something out of Hiroshima, and I’m expecting falling ash.
Many thanks to the folks who’ve e-mailed to check on us. We’re okay. And many thoughts for the folks much nearer the blaze. May the weather turn in their favor.
