Hey all, we are doing fine here in smokey San Diego. The last several days have been a wild ride, but I happy to say that myself and everyone I know are safe and sound. We did evacuate for one night but were able to return the next day. No damage done except the think ash covering our streets, yard, car, even inside our home. I don't personally know anyone who has lost their home. But my heart goes out to the 1000+ who have to return home to find nothing but soot.
I can't help but think as I watch the ashes float down from the sky that those are someone else's memories. Perhaps remains of their wedding photos, their son's favorite blanket, or their well read Bible. Each time I brush dust off of my table I am thankful that it is still standing there to do so.
Keep San Diego in your prayers. There is a lot of heart ache abouning and many people still need prayer for their safety.
I've missed you, dear Diary.
