Fire on the mountain
Despite having flown through the deeply punishing winds, doing a touch-and-go landing at Burbank and seeing the flames from the air, somehow until now I failed to grasp the scale of the Southern California fires. The excellent LA Times photo gallery*, however, brings home the reality. I’m reminded of the word "terriblisma"–or as we might say it now, “shock and awe.” [Via]
