Orange County, How Do I Love Thee

Our poor Orange County, beset by fires and gale-force winds!

My heart goes out to all those who have lost their homes. May you be able to heal from your loss as quickly as possible.

I’m also mourning the loss of so many trees over here in my neck of the woods. Many of them were beautiful, old trees that unfortunately were too top-heavy to resist the wind.

Our lungs, may they soon be able to breathe a bit more freely. My windows have not opened once since Saturday.

My thanks to the firefighters who have worked tirelessly and endlessly to battle the Santiago fire, which just refuses to die.

We will get through this. Hopefully sooner rather than later.

    Here, here! Since we’ve mostly been cooped up, I haven’t driven around to see the damage. But I know once I see what has happened to our lovely OC (as well as to my other love, San Diego), it will break my heart.

    We can never thank our firefighters, and the ones who came from afar to help, enough.
