I don't have much to say right now that hasn't been said about the wildfires, but my heart is with those suffering, and with those fighting the fires and giving aid to those in need.  

We have been mostly staying inside due to hazardous levels of smoke and particulates in the air, but Saturday, desperate to get out of the house, we drove to the coast.  It was good to be in the fog and breathe in the sea air, but just a few miles away the smoke was unbelievably thick.  Rain is in the forecast and it can't come soon enough.
