There is an old joke which comes to mind now and again- the punchline is "We have four seasons here in LA, too; Mudslide, Drought, Fire, and Earthquake".
The above was taken on Saturday from my window upstairs. The Santa Anas had been blowing strong all night and there were fires to the west of us.
This was taken this morning, from outside. The winds have pretty much died down, but the smoke is moving in.
This was taken only a few hours later.
