Los Angeles / Simi Valley fires
This is the first of three digital photos I took of the view of the Simi Valley fires from our house/neighborhood. Those aren't clouds; that's smoke. The rest of the sky was crystal-clear. By the end of the day, the air was very smoky/ash-filled, even though we never came under any of the evacuations.
Photo 2
Photo 3. Note the dark smoke on the right; that's a fire run that started about 5 minutes before the photo was taken.
This is what our car looked like in the morning. That's ash on the car.
Burned hills around Chatsworth - we took this one a couple of weeks after the fires.

Signage at the entrance to the Ship Bottom beach. Lots of regulations!
Looking back from the dunes down 20th street in Ship Bottom. The white structure at the lefthand-end of the street is the Joe Pops bar. My grandmom's old house was a couple blocks down the street.
Waves! Hurricane Isabel was approaching at the time, hence the surf.
