Here’s an image from the LA Times of the locations of all the fires and their specs as of Tuesday. You can see that the fires in Orange County are closest to us. All of Southern California is covered in ash. You can smell it when you go outside and it gets dark a lot sooner than it should.
Our friend Caroline, who lives in Orange County, sent us these pictures today. Her roommate works about two miles from their home and her co-worker shot these. There is a fire right across the street from her office. I’m guessing it isn’t big enough to warrant shutting down the office for a day or two. Crazy.
The one thing I find funny is the number of people who were washing their cars yesterday and Monday. Do they understand that their car will be covered in ash in a matter of hours after the car wash?
