SoCal fire, pt. 2

Being so far away from family and friends in the fire affected areas in San Diego is hard – not as hard as being there, mind you, but hard. This situation is astonishing. The fire moved so fast. Michelle’s folks are doing o.k. – they decided to wait it out in their house, and seem to be in a sliver of land that the fire burned around . . . probably due to the fact that it all burned just a few years ago, and there wasn’t as much fuel.

We’ve been watching a San Diego TV station that’s been streaming their coverage online. That helps.

Keep praying.

UPDATE 8:50am: A large mountain about half a mile to the north of Michelle’s folks may be catching fire. This mountain didn’t burn in 2003, so lots of old brush there. They’re watching it closely, and may evacuate.

UPDATE 5:15pm: Michelle’s parents got a reverse 911 call at around 2pm telling them to evacuate. As of around 3:45pm, they hadn’t left yet. My sister, brother-in-law, and their kids had to evacuate yesterday, but were allowed to go back home this afternoon.
