West Coast Skies

October 21, 2007

Mother Nature is issuing a beat down expected to last until Tuesday. Fire is zero percent contained.

The world is not your ashtray, keep your cigarette ends/butts in your vehicles (whether it is the cause here or not!)

The lighter section is a clear patch. Four hours later, clearer skies.

    There is nothing scarier than a fire.
    People think California should, or would be scary because of the possibility of earthquakes and landslides, but the really imminent danger is the forest fires.

    Strangely beautiful, until you realize it isn’t a sunrise or sunset. Hope you guys are good. I remember before we left Florida, when it seemed the entire state was on fire…very disturbing when you can see the fire coming like this.

    Yes, strangely beautiful. Oddly I like the energy in the air you get with a forest fire and a Santa Ana wind. Earth-wind-fire… but I hope you’re safe.

    Thanks Professor, I have a headache from the heat, my skin is dry, and I see people walking around with surgical masks over their mouths and noses. I don’t think I will go that far. I still need to take the dog out because he is going wild. He lives outside so I have been trying to accomadate him. I made an appointment with the groomers tomorrow just in case I have to break down and let him come into the house. I am so stress living here, with the dog, in such close quarters, and I got it in my head that when we move to our own place, the place we buy, I must have some chickens and a rooster. I told the other two and they went crazy, talking about they don’t want to hear a rooster. LOL! And I have been stressed over your Da Whiteman conversations. I just can’t understand invasive people. What is the point of invading. I. Just. Can’t. Feel. IT!

    I favor the chickens/rooster, I want them too although people tell me that only shows I romanticize farms.

    My God the fire situation sounds bad.

    Whiteman stress – that is sweet of you, I am touched! But fear no Whiteman – all of these are long ago. The incident with the T.A. is the only really recent or ongoing one and it allowed me to comprehend the model. I’m going to move to another section, I think – different T.A. (Ah, the joys of taking a class when you’re a professor – you have the same sorts of problems as any student, but you know what to do….)
