I'm so worried about family and friends in the area. I woke up this morning with horrible realities and with the time difference I haven't had much contact with family. I just got word from my sister Charla (below).
I wanted to talk to you about that last evening but I knew you'd be
asleep. The fires are the worst in So. Cal history, spanning from Los
Angeles (communities) past San Diego. Everyone in Fallbrook has been
evacuated, and I heard from a co-worker today (who's grandparents live
there) that at least (or around) 500 homes around Gird Rd./Reche/Pala
Mesa Golf course have been destroyed.
Francie and Wally and Dad (hopefully Dad) haven't been
evacuated--Carlsbad is safe right now and La Mesa, too, but Poway,
Ramona, parts of Del Mar and Rancho Santa Fe etc... have all been
evacuated. Malibu has been evacuated and the weather is supposedly
some of the driest in history. I spoke with Francie for a while
yesterday and she says that everything is very somber and eerie. No
one smiles and tons of shops have closed down, all of the schools have
shut down and people are just glued to their houses and tvs. No one is
supposed to leave their homes unless evacuated.
I'll write more later.
I'm praying for everyone!
