“The National Weather Service documented a slew of record-setting temperatures across the state Sunday. In Woodland Hills, just north of Calabasas, the mercury reached a sweltering 121 degrees. In San Jose, it was 103 just before 2 p.m., breaking a 1923 record.

“As temperatures rose, the operator of the state’s power grid warned of possible rolling blackouts for millions of customers beginning at 3 p.m. — the second time in less than a month that a heatwave has prompted the warnings.”

Here is the California Fire Map.

I could look into the sun as the smoke filtered the sun ray. I took these photo at 6:00 p.m.

Please pray for the mercy of the weather, the firefighters, all the car units, and thousands of people affected by the fires.
