Here are excerpts from today’s Union Tribune regarding the latest information on the fires here in San Diego:
As of last night (10/29), all but one wildfire remained under investigation. Authorities have located the exact power pole, in the 1500 block of Rice Canyon in eastern Fallbrook, where the 9,500-acre Rice Canyon fire began.
Containment means firefighters have encircled a fire, minimizing its risk of spreading. Controlled means a fire is extinguished.
Since Oct. 21, the Witch Creek fire – the largest conflagration – has burned nearly 198,000 acres from near Julian to Rancho Santa Fe. The fire is 95 percent contained and is expected to be fully controlled by Saturday.
Near the Witch Creek inferno, the Poomacha fire started in Pauma Valley and has charred almost 50,000 acres. It is 70 percent contained, with full control expected by Nov. 5.
In South County, the Harris fire, which began in Potrero, is 85 percent contained at 90,440 acres. Full containment is expected Wednesday and full control on Saturday.
The Rice Canyon fire, which broke out east of Fallbrook, was fully contained Sunday at 9,472 acres. Full control is predicted for Nov. 5.
The Horno fire on Camp Pendleton is fully contained at 21,004 acres, with full control expected Thursday.
Tomorrow is Halloween and I will be making an attempt to be Elphaba from “Wicked.” The one thing I don’t have is a black cape. I’ll post a picture whether it’s good or not.
But overall, I have not given justice to what is usually my favorite holiday. We didn’t have a chance to carve pumpkins this year and I didn’t decorate at all. 😦
In fact, it’s been kind of a strange week already. Han & DK went to Disneyland yesterday so I barely saw them, but they had a blast. Tomorrow is Halloween, which is not your typical day or night. Thursday, Han has a show and on Friday he leaves for a conference. Then it will be November, my birth month and a whole new set of thoughts to think.
