Evening Wildfire Update ...

Make Time for Small Reflections
Click for my Morning 'Wildfire' Musings
Brief update: Unfortunately we now have several more fires burning out of control here in Southern California (in addition to the original two from this morning) ... the one in Newport Beach is closest to me and I'm hopeful fire-fighters will be able to put it down quickly before it gets dark. Several smaller fires in San Bernardino, Norco & Ontario were 'contained' quickly earlier in the day ... but 'mop up' (to be absolutely sure there are no lingering embers) is on-going. The winds are strong & gusty making it challenging to fight and/or control these fires. It's hard to watch the continuous news coverage, but it's equally difficult to turn it off ... just because. At times like this I'm grateful for my 'slate' roof and wish there weren't so many Palm Trees in the area. The first clip shows the three in front of my house ... blowing in the wind pretty noisily this morning around 10:45. The second shows trees across the street and inland from my house.

Thought for this evening ...
