What a wild few days. The Sun turned blood red, going outside is hazardous to one's health - need a mask, hermetically seal the windows and its been exceedingly hot and dry. 10,000 homes are in danger at Lake Arrowhead and the entire town is under a mandatory evacuation. Running Springs confirms the loss of 400 homes and the air attack of fixed wing was done at sunset. It's too dangerous. The fire is not laying down.
My old stomping grounds of San Diego are in shambles. The beach towns of Leucadia, Encinitas and Solana Beach have gone through evacuation stages. Qualcomm Stadium is as busy as a Charger's game day bustling with victims, volunteers and insurance agents.
The last overflight for Orange County roared by. The winds are not as bad as they were yesterday where standing up was difficult. But still went out to dinner last night in defiance with a great friend while both of us marveled at the Moon that looked liked Mars. God love those Angel firefighters as they are giving it their All.
