As everyone has surely heard by now, San Diego is in flames. Again. The Santa Ana winds are especially bad this time, and they are uncontrollably driving two major fires (and several smaller ones).
I had been watching the news broadcasts last night, but gave up and went to bed around midnight. At 6:00am, I awoke to a phone call from my mom. A smaller fire (now contained) had started near us, and she wanted us to pack up and head down to her house in La Jolla, which will remain safe. As of this afternoon, I can still ping the router in my house. As more evacuations are ordered in the communities surrounding our house—the latest appears to be for our community, but it’s unclear—I can only hope for the best.
As I said, myself, my wife, and our three cats are safe and sound at my parents’ house.
