Hot! Hot! Hot!

We're in the midst of a heatwave, but yesterday it was extra hot in our neighborhood...

 I applaud the firefighters who were battling the blaze in 110 degree heat and who continue to monitor the hillside for hotspots.

With helicopters dropping fire retardant and 175+ firefighters on the ground, they were able to contain the fire overnight. 

Yesterday was probably the hottest day in Southern California.  Our area usually has a couple of days where the mercury hits 90 degrees... but over 100 is just plain crazy!  Although I love fall, October usually spells "fire season" here in Southern California.  Hopefully the weather cools down, some moisture comes our way and this is it for this year's fire season...

So if you see a firefighter, give them a hug... or at least a big thumbs up. They're amazing!
