It’s been a really difficult week in California. You may have heard that there are fires burning both in the North and in the South. The Camp Fire, as the wildfire in the Northeast part of California is called, has been devastating. So many lives lost, so many people without homes. It’s going to be a difficult holiday season for so many people. And as awful as it sounds, and as depressing as it is, these wildfires seem to be our new reality.
San Francisco has been smoky since last Thursday when the fire started. Since then, it has gotten so much worse. Our homes smell like smoke. We’re told to wear masks when going outside. A blanket of orange haze sits over the city. And it is predicted that this will continue for at least another week.
