Smoke gets in your eyes

Once again, California is on fire. I couldn't figure out why I kept seeing ash and smelling smoke so strongly while walking the Pound Princess this morning. Our paper stated that the Irvine fire had been put out. Wrongo. #1 son just called to say that his work was evacuated. They're about fifteen minutes away from us. Hmm. The fire just moved and is about ten minutes away and fire trucks are blasting past our neighborhood. I might not get a lot of work done today...

here's hoping all is well in our neck of the woods, so to speak. just seeing it on the news is scary I can't even imagine being that close.

Thanks, Mark. #1 son still couldn't go back to work. The fire, so far, is making a huge circle around us.
