Fire season and it’s only January


los angeles sky from my deck

The temperature in Los Angeles is forecast to be 84 F (29 C) degrees today… in the middle of January! While we are basking in this lovely beach weather, there is a downside. Oh, why does there always have to be a downside? We are seriously lacking in that wet stuff that is supposed to be falling from the sky. This means that fire season is already upon us.

At 9:00am I walked downstairs from my office to find the living room bathed in an orange glow. So I picked up my camera and raced back upstairs to my deck to see this dark sky. The 1,700 acre fire started in the Glendora area just northeast of downtown Los Angeles around 6:00am and three hours later the sky was still dark towards the south. Three people have been accused of recklessly starting the fire. This does not bode well for the rest of the year if we don’t get any rain.

Be careful out there, folks.

I am an explorer and creative person. I've had many jobs, careers and interests... everything in life and the universe fascinates me. Born in Brighton, England, I've lived my entire adult life in Los Angeles, California. A few years ago I rediscovered photography which is a great excuse to get outside and look. I'm also in the process of re-writing some of my unpublished short stories and possibly a novel. .
