Brushfires near where I work...

'Tis the season. Even though the winds are cold, they're dry, blustery and coming from the east. It's Santa Ana time!

Two brushfires have kicked up in the area. The Marek Fire started yesterday, claiming 3700+ acres. The Porter Ranch Fire just north of Chatsworth has shut down the 118. Thick smoke in the atmosphere, and the air is acrid. I'm about 25 miles from this fire (20 miles as the condor flies).

Nothin' like a little excitement to start your work week.
