Maybe it’s the movies’ fault, but there is a part of me that is definitely a wanna-be Californian. The sun! The surf! The beaches!
But it’s the other stuff about the place that turns me right off. The smog. The crime. The earthquakes. And of course, the wildfires. Lots and lots of wildfires. The latest ones that are raging include the Blue Cut fire bearing down on San Bernardino County, where 82,000 are being evacuated. Among the fire’s targets was the historic Summit Inn right on Route 66, which has burned to the ground.
I am following the live streams of the fires in progress as well as other live updates. What a sad situation, and a good reminder to not move to southern California — even with the NFL now back in LA.
