100% contained as of this morning. Nice to see that they’re ahead of schedule on that one. Uber-fire restrictions are currently in effect, including a ban on outdoor smoking. Try telling that to the beefy guy who sat next to us in the patio of the Tudor last night, using the grass as his personal ashtray.
And while life goes on, I’ve been surprised this morning by the news of one swim friend who lost her house in the blaze, and another acquaintance whose house was barely spared. The need to help these friends will not go away anytime soon, as the whole rebuilding process, both physical and psychological, will take some time.
