The last couple of years have been very bad for fires. They have affected people that I know and also have had a very bad effect on air quality here in California.
First is the Poor Air Quality from the smoky air that we have this weekend. I have spent most of the day just sheltering in place as today we have smoke at ground level.
This means that I will again read The Case of the Monster Fire which is about wildfires that hit Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas last year and burnt much of the county in Kansas where I went to High School.
I am also having memories of the prairie fire in The Little House on the Prairie which would have been a similar type fire.
I am just glad that we have great men and women dedicated to putting out fires. We all need to thank our firefighters.
Keep the California firefighters in your prayers as they battle the many fires here. Also, the people whose homes are affected.
