Greetings from Malibu

I woke up in San Luis Obispo this morning, put the top down, and headed off for a leisurely drive down the coast. I've flirted with fogbanks, passed hundreds of farmworkers busy in the fields, and even crossed paths with a dia de los muertos festival.

Right now, I'm having lunch at a Thai restaurant on PCH. About half an hour ago I was enjoying the sunny day and ocean views, and I happened to look over at the side of the road. "Holy shit!" I announced to the wind. The ground on both sides of the road was charred. Less than two weeks ago it was ablaze.

I've seen a couple of fire trucks parked beside the road. Beyond that, you have to pay careful attention to see that anything happened.
