This is insane. I am hearing things like "worst case scenario". There is nothing on tv except fire coverage. It’s in Anaheim Hills, Yorba Linda, Chino Hills, Corona (which are all kinda or pretty close), then up in Sylmar and even over on the Palos Verdes Penninsula.
The sky is orange and it is only midday. Where it isn’t orange it is thick and a greyish brown. I am going to close the windows as soon as I finish this because slowly it has gotten worse and now it smells like someone is burning stuff right outside. I am starting to get a headache and the taste at the back of my throat is dry and smokey. Juan went to go get a smog check on the car (of all things!) because he needs it for the registration. All the cars are covered in ash. It is in the 80’s and humidity is in the single digits. The Santa Ana winds came along and are having a field day.
Hundreds of homes lost, luckily, no loss of life.
