Ashes to ashes

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.


  1. Okay, first my heart totally goes out to everybody who is having to deal with the fires first hand. Secondly, it feels shallow to admit it, but I LOVE that you have your URL on your car!

  2. I know, I'm such a geek / blog whore! ;)

  3. that's terrible about the fires. all of my favorite bloggers seem to all be from SoCal (or maybe i was a valley girl in another life?) so they always come to mind when I hear about stuff like this.

    yeah. and LOVING the sticker on your car!!!

  4. I remember one year they found out a fire fighter had started one of the blazes. :\ I hope they get everything under control soon.

  5. I agree with Erin. My heart goes out for those in need and I hope the fires are contained. And cute URL!

  6. the fires are so crazy and scary, i hate it.
