With the temperatures rising, there has been fires
in Los Angeles and New Mexico. 

Brought back memories of the terrible fires that rocked 
San Diego a few years back. The city was actually 
surrounded by the flames. And the air had a weird cast 
to it, with a pink sun, as above.

Sending prayers that the current fires can be controlled
with no harm to all.
