Los Angeles Wildfires August 2009

* Evacuations have been ordered for parts of La Canada, La Crescenta, Glendale, Altadena, Pasadena, Sunland/Tujunga and Big Tujunga Canyon. I am still searching for more specific information regarding evacuations, street closures, school closures and shelter locations. More information will be forthcoming.

A Smoke Filled Sky Surrounding Downtown L.A.

We are away on a trip to see family in Missouri, but are closely monitoring the wildfire situation in and around Los Angeles. Believe it or not, these wildfires affect the entire Los Angeles area. People (especially children) with Asthma (and other lung conditions) are severely affected by the smoke in the air that seems to seep into everyone's homes through the vents and cracks under the doors...miles and miles away from the fires themselves. There is an ominous sky looming above the entire L.A. area that seems to create a sense of impending doom.

We love you, L.A.
