Is it still fire season???

Classes began at the college this week and in the decade that I have been a professor, I cannot remember ever leaving the house without even a jacket on for the first day of spring courses in January.  California’s weather always tends toward the beautiful, but this season it is no joke.  It’s on the news that California is on the brink of a devastating drought.  Down here on the front lines, it’s downright creepy.  Every day, more blue skies and sunshine.  It’s beginning to get to me.  And it sort of puts into perspective that helpless powerlessness that we all have in the face of nature.

Extreme Fire Conditions in January!

Looking down the north slope of the San Jacintos.  Nothing but blue skies and the mountains beyond.
