As it happens, a number of my friends from high school are living in various areas affected by the fires. Their reports on Facebook are pretty harrowing. Several of them have had to evacuate (others did so voluntarily); all of them are without power. One friend's house is intact, but the house next door burned to the ground, so that was a narrow escape. Some have friends and co-workers who are out of contact, and there are significant fears of the worst.

Yet another time I am glad to be in San Diego -- but of course we are not immune; our turn could be coming. Preparedness is a good thing.
