I'm not quite sure how to describe the last few days. In most ways, it would trivialize what so many people are currently going through and what they will continue to go through in the coming days, weeks, months, and even years. But, I did at least want to say that we are safe, our families are safe and we are hanging in there. Our area of town has not been as affected as it had been during the Cedar Fire four years ago, but the smoke and ash still made its way to us.
We've been holed up in our place for the last two days trying to not breathe smoke and soot, and I just got word that it will be at least one more day before I can go back to work. Stir crazy doesn't begin to describe how I feel, but hey, I am in my own house right now, so I am not complaining, not one bit.
For everyone affected by the fires in San Diego and Southern California, please continue to be safe until this is over. Things are looking up, but we aren't there yet. Take care, everyone.
