Oakland has a multitude of Victorian houses that survived the 1906 earthquake. This lovely Queen Ann with fish scale shingles is on Ivy Hill. You saw another shot of Ivy Hill last week. Not only is the weather fair, and the skies clear, we've also been having a heat wave accompanied by warm easterly winds. Not a good combination in fire season. It's supposed to cool down tonight with a return to our typical, cool westerly winds. Fingers crossed. Linked to Skywatch Friday.
