I'm sitting here checking my email and other stuff online, and I'm listening to the fire news in the background. There's a reason I've been avoiding the news. It's not very good.
I'm lucky. My area hasn't been threatened by fire. But it's still impacting me.
I've been keeping the house closed. It smells like wildfire outside. The light is weird. It's kind of hazy, though there aren't many clouds in the sky. And the sun has more of a reddish hue.
There's a dusting of ash everywhere. And the world just feels ashy.
Ah, October in Southern California.
