Fire map

I'm loving this image that maps the current fires in Northern California because it pretty accurately captures how I picture the 500-850 fires (depending on who's counting) in Northern California over the past week.

But I'm not loving the fires. The air is nasty, sooty, yellow-gray. It's like being in the Los Angeles basin in the mid-1980s. Bleah.

My town isn't in any danger, but my thoughts go out to those who have had to evacuate or who have lost their homes.

Lovely. Take care of those little wheelchair-lungs of yours. :-)
