This is what is dominating the news, the sky, and Angelenos thoughts the last couple of days.
The top two images were taken by my son as we drove down off of the hills we live upon.
Near home at the top of the hill looking north toward the two big fires in Big Tujunga and Glendale/Altadena. To our south, the fire in Rancho Palos Verdes is more than 90% contained. This August has been one of the coolest on record, till it decided to go out in a blaze of sorts. Blogger/writer Gay Degani has posted some very dramatic photos from a friend who lives too close by to all of this. The L.A. Times is reporting evacuations for the communities near the fires. Welcome back, summer.
