It smells like burning!

I went to bed at about 1 or 1:30, and planned to get up at 3. I remember being fairly awake after getting woken up by the alarm, but deciding to stay in bed a little longer. Next thing i knew i looked at the clock and it was 4:13, and i figured okay, can still get to work really early. But once again i didn't move. Repeat this at 5:13, and at 6:13 i finally managed to crawl out of bed. I'm not sure what's up with all the 13s, given some hazy memories i suspect i went through the process a lot more than that, but only clearly remember the ones that involved cool numbers :)

Cassie did her best to wake me up, i think she's figured out that if she pokes at me enough after my alarm goes off that i'll wake up enough to play with her. So most of my conscious periods were when she would drop the ball next to me and poke at me until i threw it for her and then would doze off again. She must have gotten tired of it at some point though, because when i woke up at 6:13 she was curled up against my side and seemed to be sleeping herself.

When i got outside there was a really strong smell of smoke, and the sun was starting to come up just enough that i could tell that the entire sky was grey.

The fire looked pretty much the same as it had the night before, a dusky red glow beneath the smoke. Nothingmuch changed except that it was now directly to the north and a little to the east, instead of north and a mile or two to the west =P They mentioned on the news last night before i went to bed that that they were evacuating Mt. Baldy Village, so i guess there's a lot more fire back there that i couldn't see.

Apparently there was a lot of fog this morning too, because it was grey the whole way to work. I saw one or two more spots of fire early on, but not much really.

I got to work about 7:30, and was the first one in. I've been getting a medium amount of work done, but i could certainly be more focused than i am. It's an improvement though.
