Reverse sunset. The day was remarkably clear, the Santa Ana winds having swept all the smog out to sea, but at the end of the day you can see the dust coming in from the desert. Tomorrow will still be hot and dry, but it won’t be as clear.

Layers of Hollywood hills & San Gabriel mountains on a clear LA day. Nice to have a break from the smog.

Remember to vote in local elections. Initiatives, council & school board members, judges, etc. affect you and your community directly even if it’s not as exciting as the Presidential race. And the people elected locally go on to build the pool of state and national candidates. If you care about 2018 or 2020, get out and vote locally to get the ball rolling.

I hope the rain isn’t too intense down there! I’d heard you were expecting a lot of heavy rain and wind today.

Thanks. It was intense in a lot of places, but our neighborhood did about as well as the last big storm. Northern California has been having it really bad, though. It’s weird to go from 6 years of drought to catastrophic flooding.
