The air’s a little worse out there today. It’s nine a.m. and normally we have bright blue skies by now — the sky is this sickly yellow. We left a window open in the bathroom last night, and now the bathroom smells like smoke. A handful of people left work yesterday when the spreading fire started to threaten their apartments and houses. Biggest concern for us in Costa Mesa is air quality — the Santa Ana winds blow east to west, and the Santiago Fire is vast and smoky. Here’s the map. For general reference, we’re approximately at the intersection of the 405 and 55.
Thanks to everyone for the concern and support — the wife and I are perfectly fine, and are similarly concerned about others.by
