Who's jittery?



Okay... I'm totally jittery. This is the time of year you keep an eye to the skyline for fires anyway, but the hills are a color I've never seen before. By the end of the year they are a nice camel color. I call them camel butt hills because they kinda look like their backs. Right now they are a weird sort of reddish earth color. I tried to capture it today, but it's hard to capture the color just right.

This small fire was in the (now) dry creek bed about two blocks from my rental. Our firefighters are amazing at getting this stuff stamped down quick. Still the trees are starting to show quite a lot of stress. That is fuel we don't normally have.
