northern san diego county was pounded with brush fires yesterday forcing thousands to be evacuated from their schools, homes and workplaces. since daughter #1 just moved down to carlsbad, this is not the news i want to hear about. the fires are so close to her, her place of employment was one of the locations that had to be evacuated! when we talked yesterday, she said that she went straight home, got aoife and hit the beach to stay out of harms way. she was able to sleep at her apartment last night but told me that she had an evacuation bag by her bed, just in case.
i pray for the firefighters that have to battle these fires; i pray for the people that have lost their homes; and i pray that everyone stay safe.
UPDATE 9.30am: reports are saying the carlsbad fire is now 60% contained.
until we meet again my friends, stay safe-
