The hills are filled with fire

As I’m sure you’ve all no doubt heard or read, pretty much everything around LA is on fire. Malibu, the San Bernardino mountains, the area around San Diego. It’s not good. Until today it hadn’t been that bad here in the city but today is smoky. Real smoky. My eyes are burning and it feels like everyone is sneezing a lot. We're keeping the windows closed.

But on the bright side (you know, where I live), I will say the light is beautiful. It’s this kind of soft golden color, filtered by the smoke, that makes everything look really beautiful. So there’s that.

I know I’ve mentioned this before but I’ve been here a shade over 6 months now and as far as measurable rainfall goes, it has rained once in that time. And I think the cumulative total for last year was something like 3”. So I suppose it was inevitable that it was all gonna go at some point. The Santa Ana winds that kicked up last weekend just pulled the trigger.

But here’s hoping it ends soon. God bless the fine people fighting those fires ‘cause lord knows they don’t get enough praise.

And all apologies for not posting more stuff but it's been a little crazy here in pitchland and I haven’t had a day off in something like three weeks. Kinda worn out. You understand. I'll make it up to you soon. I promise.
