Carlsbad Writer Contemplates Ash Angels

by The Editors on October 25, 2007

Ash Man2Lowell Ponte, a Carlsbad-based writer, former radio host, and avid local garage sailor wrote today about the fires in San Diego County for a site called In his article he mentions thinking about putting on a mask and going outside to play in the ashes:

In an odd moment yesterday, I thought it might be fun to go outside with my dust mask, lie down on our ash-covered driveway, and move my arms to make a snow angel. I pondered whether the fragile ash could be formed into a snowman.

Sadly, Mr. Ponte was unsuccessful in both missions. But at least Lowell hasn’t lost that wacky sense of humor.
