Here we go again – fires in California

Ugh, they loom close to our house. Everything is hazy and smoky and there’s ‘Santa Barbara snowflakes’ (aka ash) falling from the sky.

That’s the hill near our home. Covered in fire and smoke.

They’re dropping slurry on it and the firefighters are braving this horror again. People in our neighborhood all have their ladders out to climb on the roof every so often to check the progress. We’re not in evacuation yet, just in the warning zone.

So everything we have to have is loaded in a pile in the garage again. I know no one else wants this either, but it’s really ruined my Sunday plans. 🙁 Just hope that everyone stays safe.
