It is also later in the year from the other shots and the sun has actually moved to the far left so I no longer get to see the sun actually setting from my balcony.
So the fires continue and I can’t not post about it. Fortunately for myself, right now, I don’t know anyone directly affected by the fires and I hope that doesn’t change.
Some stats for posterity and to share with you right now:
5000001M o_o evacuated from their homes
- 1300 structures burned down
- 583 square miles ablaze — an area larger than New York City
- 45 injured
- ~17 fires burning up the Southland
- 2 people dead
Unfortunately, I am pretty sure those stats will change. I spent all of yesterday watching the news and exchanging comments and links with
. Today I have the luxury to go to work and not have to listen to the news all day long (like I would at home since I wouldn’t let myself watch anything else until the late afternoon yesterday).
