Fires to the West, Fires to the East…

As some of you know, I live in So Cal, which is home to that phenomenon known as the California Wildfire Season. Couple that with the Santa Ana (really, “Santana” but we won’t correct the general population now, will we?) Winds, things get rough in summer.

Below is a screencap of the current, as of right now, map of the fire (courtesy of the website).

I’ve pointed out my house and the fire, so not to worry about us. It’d have to burn through one hell of a lot of city before getting to us. The worst we’ll get is ash and bad air. Send your good thoughts instead to the firefighters, men and women, on the line in 100+ degree (F) heat as they battle this.

And also to those who have already lost homes/property/loved ones in this and other fires.
