You're all in my thoughts here in Vermont too - please take care of yourselves and your families.

Yeah, Sandi and others, thanks for asking.
We're a few canyons from the Malibu fire, mostly out now. We live at the edge of tinder dry parkland in Pacific Palisades that hasn't burned in 30 years, so we keep our eyes out. Lots of helicopters doing reconaissance in the area, looking for outbreaks.
The air today is still disgusting, and we keep inside as much as possible. But this happens every year, sometimes several times, in Southern California, so many are slightly blase about it, even though this is the worst year in memory. The evacuations were much exaggerated, it turns out. No where near the 800,000 to 1 million that have been reported. I certainly don't mean to deny the terrible losses many have undergone, however.

Hey Leslie,

We live down near the bluff of Via de las Olas so must be really close to where you are!

Two animal casualties from the fire at the Wild Animal Park:

I was so concerned for all the animals too.
