894 homes so far have been destroyed due to the recent fires in Montecito and Sylmar areas of California. Although, I'm luckily 26 miles away, the sky here is still smokey and you can smell the fire in the air. Yesterday, before the winds blew some of it away, you could even see bits of ash falling down from the sky and our cars were covered in soot:
It can't be good that we're breathing all that in.
Being from the more humid coast, California wildfires baffle me, especially at how quickly they spread, are started in the first place and how it can't be contained. I can't imagine losing my home and belongings that way. Terrible.
