We are still fine. The fire has moved east of us and it is no longer a threat for us. There are still 6 separate fires and they are not contained. Many homes and lives still need your prayers. One of the two fireman killed was the husband of my daughter ’80’s co-worker and friend. They were expecting a child in a few weeks. My condolences to both their families.
We are still okay. I can see the orange – red glow over the top of the hills but as long as the wind stays as it is we will be fine. This isn’t the first time this has happened and I imagine it won’t be the last. A few years ago we actually saw flames across the top of the hills above our neighborhood. Now that was a scary day. Many people are losing their homes though and my heart goes out to them, especially the families of the two courageous firefighters who lost their lives.
There is a fire in the Angeles National Forest. This is only a few miles away from my home and it has been burning out of control since yesterday. These photos are from my front yard. I hope they get it under control soon because it is scary looking and the air quality is bad. I took these at 5pm today. Everything has a golden hue to it and the silence is deafening, like being in the eye of a storm.

My son ‘88 took the photos below of the cloudy smoke in and around our neighborhood today. I will be posting updates from time to time but for now everything is fine. The fire rages on and there have been some evacuations but so far we are not in any danger. The air quality is quickly becoming an issue and ash is falling so that is going to be a problem.
False Moon. Great shot.
