And you know the sun's settin' fast 
And just like they say nothing good ever lasts 
Well, go on now and kiss it goodbye but hold on to your lover 
'Cause your heart's bound to die 
Go on now and say goodbye to our town, to our town 
Can't you see the sun's settin' down on our town, on our town 

Our Town, by Iris Dement

I'm heartbroken over the tragedies unfolding around my beautiful state.

I snapped this photo from a Home Depot parking lot near Modesto. Paradise is a long distance from us, but the smoke moved south very quickly, darkening the evening sky to the west. We've been hit hard this year by these fast-moving wildfires and we are long past when the winter rains should have arrived and put an end to the fire season. It's been savage.

Help out if you can. We've only got each other.
