More on the Napa Fires

What is it like to live in Napa these days?  You never really get used to the strange sunlight through the smoke, making it seem somewhere between day and night.  You dread the weather forecast, with its high temps, high winds, and low humidity,  And every hour your phone pings with yet another notice from the Office of Emergency Services: new evacuation orders, new evacuation warnings:  That's where Mark and Ann, live, that's where Fred lives.  I hope Sheldon is OK.  Steve lost his house.
