Wildfire season in California is upon us (sigh). This year it came early and has been truly wild. We are entering our 29th day of Spare the Air, and it is getting rather tedious checking PurpleAir every few hours just to see if it is OK to walk the dog. But at least we are safe indoors. I feel for the people who have had to evacuate at a moment’s notice, unsure if they will ever see their house and belongings ever again. All this in the midst of a pandemic. 

A few days ago we woke up to an apocalyptic dark orange sky unlike anything I had seen before. The sun didn’t reach us all day, making the smoky air rather chilly. This song is the first thing that came to mind.
