Windy enough for ya?

The winds really, really cranked up last night and it's supposed to continue into tomorrow afternoon. My insomnia kicked in and I spent a good portion of the night marveling at the sound and fury of the winds and also the sound of a bunch of furniture in the pool area getting thrown around. Walking to work today, I almost made it into the building when it started up again and I had to really lean into it. I felt like a mime. Then I heard about this, which sucks majorly because brushfires and high winds are never a good combination, plus my brother lives in La Crescenta, not far from Tujunga. I'm sure his apartment isn't in any danger, but having to look at charred, blackened hills is never fun. I just hope LAFD does their usual fine job of saving the houses. Those guys are amazing. Update: Apparently there were some buildings lost. Bummer. Hopefully none of these fires get really out of control.

    Thank you for the kind words of support. They mean more than you know.

    The recent winds were (and remain) a challenge for the men and women of the Los Angeles Fire Department.

    Please rest assured that we will continue to do everything in our power to remain worthy of your respect and praise.

    Please have a great day - and make it a safe one!
