Same experience here in Pasadena! Around 11am we stuck our head in a Cafe w/o any noticeable smokey smell. An hour-1/2 later came out to air thick with it! My 1st thought was maybe the fire had next paid a visit to the foothills of Sierra Madre or Altadena! Or, just a change in the winds.I hope PA de Palm didn’;t get lit up! PA are you still around??
Oh dear....at least you got to do something useful, lol....can';t have you with empty shelves, eh? Hope the sewing soothed you a little.Was in John Lewis today, but couldn';t find any of your stuff so I';m hopping over to your shop....stocking fillers are on my mind, hahaa!
