Two fire truck convoys, northbound

I just finished driving south on “the five” or, as everyone else refers to it, Interstate 5, from the Bay Area to greater Los Angeles. I saw two convoys of fire trucks heading north. Done with their work. Tired firefighters, driving home. Thank you, I said, looking across the median. Thank you.

Also there’s this news bit for Green Valley Lake: The list of damaged residences. Those from the village read it with a certain specificity. But I encourage you to click and look at the right column, and compare the number of “partial” damaged addresses with “total” damaged addresses. The ones lost on our street were, alas, total. (Our cabin came through okay.)
