Some other time

Every Californian knows the best beach weather is in autumn. It’s still warm enough. You don’t get the fog and overcast sent by the marine layer. There’s no rain. The kids are in school.

But every Californian also knows autumn is wildfire season.

As I sit here in the desert I yearn to be at the coast. But it’s on fire. The air is filled with smoke and ash and anxiety and sadness.


  1. Transitioning down the west coast as a snowbird from the NW to the SW in the fall needs some careful route planning in recent years.

  2. I'm back in the SFV, no smoke except my cush.
