If you have missed it [I am not sure how you could these fires can be seen from space and Colorado is choking on our smoke] California is burning. But talking about it doesn’t really tell you what we are seeing here I am just going to post the photos they do.
[Also I am in Hollywood so not in harm’s way — unless the fire marches through Glendale and Burbank. It is trying. North Glendale is singed but holding.]
*at the time of this posting the fire has burned 121,000 acres and two firefighters have lost their lives — my thoughts are with the families and friends of the lost firemen and with their fellow firemen still on the line
