So so scary. They're nowhere near us out here in the desert, but they've pretty much surrounded my parents and little brother and his family in Bonita and my brother and his family in Carlsbad. Everyone's fine, and today it seems the threats near them are decreasing a bit, but so scary nonetheless. Byron and Kim were on voluntary evacuation as of a couple of days ago but they didn't decide to leave, instead they took the kids to Disneyland for the day to get out of the smoke and have some fun. Sounds like a good idea to me.
Neighborhoods near my parent's house were evacuated, and my mom and Kirk were sure to pack their car with all the important stuff, but luckily were never forced to leave. They've both been home from work and my mom found out that her boss's house in Rancho Bernardo burned down. So sad. Where do you even start after something like that?! Today things seem to be looking a lot better in the Southbay, I think the winds took the Harris fire in a different direction-- away from Bonita where my folks are. Sigh.
It's just so weird how one city can be going to work and school and carrying on like normal, while just miles away people are watching their homes burn to the ground. So so sad. Guess I just needed to post something about it. I sure hope everyone (and your families) are ok.
