Fire in the sky

L.A. usually has lovely sunsets, due to vast amounts of particulate matter (a.k.a. "smog") in the air. The sunsets have been particularly interesting this past week because of all the southern California fires. The skies have been sort of yellow all day long, and the sun is a fiery orange ball with a huge corona. Every evening it looks like the world is ending. It reminds me that I need to update my disaster preparedness kit, as well as replenish my stock of allergy medications.

On an unrelated note, I saw the world's most terrifying memo taped to the computer when I came into work this morning:

"FRI. 9/22: Pull Chuck Klosterman books for drop-in signing!!!"
