Windy Day

Up early for our dog walk with Jean. Very windy here all day. They are Santa Ana Winds and are warm, so at 6 am this morning, it was already 63° on my patio.
Had breakfast and then went to get lottery tickets. Did some work outside around the yard.
Got ready to settle down to watch Y&R but it was pre-empted by CBS-LA news because a brush fire broke out over in Granada Hills, so they were covering that. Granada Hills is to the south of us, over in the San Fernando Valley, about 10 to 15 miles away from Canyon Country where I live. There were several homes being threatened. Here in SoCal, so many neighborhoods have been built up into the canyons. They keep building houses in the canyons here in the Santa Clarita Valley, so when the hills catch fire, houses are always threatened.
About an hour and a half after the first fire, a second fire started about 5 miles away from the first fire. They don’t think it was a flying ember as the wind was blowing in the opposite direction.
So I will have to remember to watch Y&R on the POP Channel at 7 pm tonight.
Mopped my floors this afternoon. Had the doors open so it all dried really fast from the wind.

  1. Glad the fire stayed far enough away from you to not cause concern. Those winds can be fierce and cause things to change in an instant.


I appreciate your comments. Thanks for stopping by.
