At least it's not windy
The biggest Southern California fire is far from where I live, but it's grown so big that the smoke can be seen just about everywhere. It was well over 100 over the weekend, but at least it wasn't windy. It's been argued that it's irrational to live in Southern California, with fires, mudslides and earthquakes regular occurrences. But the weather and environment and even most of the people are so wonderful . . . And I'll still take a100-degree day over snow anytime. We worked outside most of the weekend -- and lounged in the pool -- and didn't feel all that uncomfortable. Of course low humidity ,makes for perfect fire weather. Here snow knows its place -- on the mountains, where it looks pretty from afar and you can visit it within an hour if you really want to.
