Flame Retardant

Just a quick note to tell y’all that I’m OK, resting in an island of calm in the middle of Lake California Is On Fucking Fire. If you’ve watched any news, you know what I mean. Fires erupted in several locations on the eastern outskirts of San Diego county, and a hot, dry, fierce wind system known as Santa Ana is doing its best to drag those flames from right to left, all the way to the ocean. Tens of thousands of acres have burned, dozens of homes torched, several deaths, so much smoke they’re advising those of us in safe areas not to go outside and breath the air. Started on Sunday, and the weather looks to remain bloodthirsty till Thursday.

I’ve got two places to stay that seem like they’re out of the fires’ path, but I can’t tell if I’m being reasonable or naive.

  4. It’s not unreasonable at all, they could not control this thing because they put all their damned money into a baseball stadium, next time if you can vote against that when you get the power mon ami.
