Howling Santa Ana winds descended Monday, Oct. 26, on Southern California, which pushed the Silverado fire in Orange County and led to residents seeing smoke from the El Dorado fire and getting rained on by ash from the Bobcat fire.

The smoke showing from the El Dorado fire is from interior islands of fuel that have not completely burned, according to Lisa Cox, ...

Snippy over Trump-Biden, California voters unload in hair salons, barbershops

Barbershops and beauty salons have always been about more than the shave and a haircut, or the mani-pedi. They’ve often been a refuge from the stresses and divisions of the outside world, a place to settle into a swivel chair and exhale. After all, you can’t really doom-scroll during a French manicure. But just as California salons are finally reopening after a punishing pandemic lockdown, the race between President Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden is coming down to its final week — and...

I did not see this coming: Southern California homebuying went from its slowest-selling spring in the record books to the fastest summer sales pace in 14 years. Few slices of the economy show how coronavirus whipsawed the economy better than the remarkable comeback for the homebuying business.
