Snowing in CA

Okay, not snow really. Ash. But it's falling like snow here--has been for a couple of days now. My husband spent a couple of hours hosing off the back deck and deck furniture last night, today they're covered in a layer of small gray flakes again. There's a fire just over the mountains. If it's like this here, I can only imagine what the firefighters must be breathing!

In other news- Popcorn the turtle is still on the lam, in spite of drastic search measures. Things are starting to look a bit bleak for the old girl.

About that snow, it's killing my sinuses. ugh. The real stuff sounds pretty good at the moment.

Poor little turtle's probably hiding from it all in a cool place.

Mine, too. I'm taking so much sudafed I can't sleep at night-- but the alternative is worse.
