Fires -- August 19, 2020

Sunday we went to outdoor mass at Good Shepherd Church in Pacifica. When we got up, we had noticed that the ground was wet. Later we learned that there had been a thunderstorm during the night. We had the option to sit in our car in the upper yard and listen to the mass on a low-power FM station. That worked well.  As we sat during mass, we kept seeing lightning bolts over the ocean. We heard thunder. Right before the consecration, my wife said that Father should hurry up because it was going to rain in ten minutes.  She was right. 

Since then, there have been lightning-caused fires all over California. My wife found ash on her car this morning, probably from the CZU Lightning Complex fire in San Mateo and Santa Cruz counties.
