This is how the sky looks around my apartment. I drove right into it while trying to return doggies to their homes.
Obviously I had to find alternate routes.
This is one of my alternate routes. If it's not a fire, it's a flood.
The fire is in a furniture store at Venice and Overland. The flood is from the fire hydrants and hoses used to extinguish the fire.
As far as we know, no one was injured. But that's as of an hour ago. Yes, I feel bad for the furniture store owners and surrounding businesses who may have been affected. But most selfishly, I feel bad for me. My entire apartment is filled with the smell of burning chemicals. My throat is dry and sore. And I'm coughing up a storm.
I'm about to go to Cheryl's for a while. No sense in breathing in smoky air when I can be breathing fresh healthy smog in Santa Monica. Ahhh...I love L.A.
