All around me, in every direction, smoke blankets the horizon. I live in Riverside. No fires in my immediate area but not far away. The folks who live in Arrowhead survived the 2003 fire but now they are fighting another devastating blaze. The Santiago-Silverado Canyon fire is in an area of Orange County where I grew up. The 15-215 freeways heading north through the Cajon Pass toward the High Desert and Las Vegas have been closed at various times because of fire and wind. The pictures from San Diego, Malibu, and other locations have been heartbreaking. Tomorrow I'm going to the Red Cross to donate blood. Not sure what else to do. I'll think of something though.
