It’s devastating here. More than 250,000 people have been evacuated so far and they are still announcing mandatory evacuations for various neighborhoods as the fires keep moving. There are 8 separate fires going. Han & I know many people who have had to leave their homes (including Heather among many others). I was unable to go to work today and they have also let us know to not come in tomorrow either. This is definitely worse than the Cedar Fire was 4 years ago (same time of year).

I have to say I’m very impressed with San Diego’s emergency response. It’s been going as well as you can possibly hope for considering all that they have to deal with.

We’re home, not going anywhere. They’ve asked us to try to keep off cell phones to allow for emergency people to use the networks. But I’m online and we’re in a very safe location.

For my friends and everyone else who have had to evacuate or otherwise been affected by the fire, my thoughts and well wishes are with you.
