We woke up to the smell of wood smoke this morning. A wild fire has been raging in the Santa Cruz mountains (where my weekend ride ends). So far its burned over 3000 acres. The ride in to work this morning was a little less pleasant than usual. The thin veil of smoke achieved maximum effect on my lungs as I huffed my way up the hills. I’m not sure if this is going to cause me to cancel my ride this weekend or not.
As soon as we told Ruby what it was, she started singing the Banana Slug’s Fire song. I’m always impressed with how quickly she relates things.
