      A friend visited me right before a fire hit and remarked how surreal and spooky it was...the yellow skies, burning eyes, and generally feeling like you have a low grade hangover (even when you haven't drank in years).

      Perhaps we're all just too worn out by all the other disasters (inland hurricane in the midwest, for example) to wrap our brains around it anymore?
