I know that it's very self-centered to complain while more than 800 families in Southern California have had their homes damaged or destroyed, but I am so ready for the Santa Ana winds to die down. It is 6 a.m. and the local weather site tells me that the temperature is 82 degrees with 12 percent humidity! The smell of smoke is very strong and my eyes and nose are burning. We are miles from any fire and so lucky.
O.k., enough whining. I'm off to get ready for work.
