California Dreamin'

This was taken near Huntington Beach yesterday afternoon. The smoke from the LA area fires blanket the area.

I think the LA Times is doing the best, least sensationalistic coverage. Check there for photos, maps and updates.

It is hot and dry here. My skin looks like it came from a lizard and my lips are cracking from the dryness. So far, there are no reports of significant fires in San Diego County but everything is on high alert. The National Weather Service forecasts these conditions to persist locally into Tuesday. We're still being spared the high winds they are getting further north which is probably why we haven't seen a big fire yet.

This photo came from the BBC:

It's awful, isn't it? I'm in Venice - no fires here, just the smoky sky that makes it look like twilight.

Those photos look like snapshots of the apocalypse...
