California Fires and Heat

California Fires and Heat

California already has two million acres burned this year alone, and we currently have 24 fires. Experts are saying that if we think this is bad, it’s going to get a lot worse. The heat and wind aren’t helping either. Yesterday was a windy day, and I couldn’t help but think about the firefighters having to stop the huge blazes. The hottest it has ever been in California is 134 degrees Fahrenheit! In some places, California looks like Mars. With all this smoke, the sky looks orange and red. A few days ago, I looked outside my window and the sun was completely blocked by the smoke. People with asthma or any type of sickness that affects the lungs are having a hard time breathing, and with COVID-19 and people trying to stay at home, it’s difficult for them to go out. I hope this all ends soon, and that 2021 will be here before we know it.
