I'm far enough from the fires here in California as to not worry about them. However, I live about 500 miles away from them and the ash in the air is falling here and covering the plants, cars, etc. let alone the poor air quality. I guess wearing masks for covid keeps us from breathing in the fine ash and other dangerous chemicals from the fires. The sky is filled with what looks like rain clouds that is actually ash and it turns the sky various colors of orange and gray. I'm waiting to see a blue sky again.
Hope Ms Lillian, Betsey, Kathy, you and other Cuties ok from Sally.
What a terrible year for storms, fire and sickness. Please take care as Sally is not too far from you! Let us know how you fare!! Hugs, Laura

Mother earth seems to be angry. I am praying for all the people, but feel helpless. It all is so overwhelming.
I agree. it is overwhelming to me too. We have a friend who is following people who have been studying weather patterns that have occurred over the past 5,000 years, And we are in a weather cycle that is very unusual and is very different from what we are used to experiencing. And they say it will not be ending soon.
I have been thinking a lot about that old margarine (I think) ad in the Hippie Seventies. The lady in the crown of daisies pulled back and pointed her hand and said, "It's not NICE to fool with Mother Nature." Well, it isn't. We've got to do bette
