Fire in the twilight
This was the sky in Marina del Rey yesterday, late afternoon. This was taken from my balcony, looking northeast. The smoke from the Sand Fire made its way all over Southern California yesterday. People on social media were posting all kinds of apocalyptic photos from all over the Southland. Keep in mind this fire is about forty miles away from me. I can't imagine what it must be like in Santa Clarita.
The skies are clear now, so hopefully that's a sign our awesome firefighters have this bad boy under control. Last I saw, the fire had consumed 22,000 acres, was only 10% contained and had destroyed almost twenty homes.
