station fire continues to burn


i'm beginning to feel a little like a broken record, but our mountains are still ablaze. many churches canceled their sunday services, and many schools are closed today. two firefighters have lost their lives in a vehicle accident while in the line of duty. the "la canada fire" or "station fire" has claimed well over 80,000 acres of forested area and 18 homes.

and yet life goes on (at least in a less outdoor, more air conditioning kind of way). such is life in southern california - a strange place to live during a time like this.

the list of links i have been compiling continues to grow. you can check it out right here.

The view up Los Robles. You can hardly see a thing today, at least so far.

I know, kind of a California white out.
