SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA FIRES....In case anyone's wondering, I'm nowhere near all the fires. The LA Times has a map here, and Irvine is about 40 miles north of Camp Pendleton and 40 miles south of the big fire they call Old fire/Grand Prix.

In fact, the worst that we've seen here is reddish skies and a thin layer of ash covering our patio furniture. Basically, brush fires aren't an issue unless you're near some brush, and here in central Orange Country we cleared away all traces of nature long ago.

Looking out the window I note that the sky is a lot clearer than it was over the weekend. I wish I could say that's good news, but I have a feeling all it really means is that the winds have shifted.
