As if the pandemic were not enough, in August, starting on the 16th, we were hit with lightning, fire, and then thick, toxic smoke.

As of today (September 5), the fires are mostly contained, but we have shifted to 100+ degrees of heat. Needless to say, we’re hoping for cooler temperatures and eventually rain.
