California is on fire
It was a sad sight on Saturday... sitting in our little store on Broadway, seeing the ash fall. "Mommy! It's snowing on our car!" said Elliette with excitement. But the heat, the smoke... it is not a happy snow storm. The fires have devoured a lot.
No one was out Saturday. It definitely was not a cheerful environment.
Incidentally, the mannequins on the sidewalk stayed outside for a very brief time, just enough time to say hello to the neighborhood before being dragged back in, for fear of them acquiring a dusting of ash and that cozy campfire smell.... except we're not camping.
The view down the street was amazing, my little camera did not do justice. The blanket of smoke above had a definitive boarder of blue beyond - the promise of fresh air, hopefully, the fires being squelched.
