Local stuff

I was barely coming out of a pie-induced daze, when I turned on the news and heard that there's yet another wildfire here in Los Angeles. It isn't that surprising, since it has been very dry and warm here this fall.

I had to post a link to this wild picture of today's fire in Malibu, as seen from the beach in Santa Monica. It's from local site LAist. The fire has destroyed 35 buildings, and is about 25% contained. I'm hoping they get it under control soon.

Oh no. :( Time to email my cousin again and make sure it isn't too close to her...

heather--well, now it's raining here, so I'm sure the fires are out! But it sure has been one disaster after another around here lately!
