We hear plenty of sirens in this neighborhood but I heard more than usual this afternoon, and then I saw the billowing, dark clouds from our bay windows. I checked the news and went out. I was reminded of April 15, 2014 again — the streets were free of cars and strangely quiet, except for the sirens, and the sidewalks were filled with neighbors and newspeople, much like last April. The smoke was heavy across the neighborhood and it was hard to breathe a block away from the fire.
I always get my local news from Universal Hub, and you can read the story and see photos here.
