sunny diego on fire!

October is the fire month
but this time
seem that San Diego has been hit
by one of the worst fires in
California story

last night, I went to bed
watching on the news how 2
big fires took over San Diego County

but this morning, at 5am
i turn on the TV
and the 2 fires have become 8 fires!

the very dry and highly windy conditions
have made this fire very hard to control

so far, many areas of the East and North county
of San Diego have been evacuated

most schools and offices are closed
i went to work but they close the office around 9.30 am
so i came back home
and we all San Diegans are just waiting for
these fires to get under control

the only hope is that the weather helps
specially the winds to mellow

so far Southern California and all the San Diego
city and County have been declared in
state of emergency

the Governator is here in San Diego
and we have so far Federal support to stop
the fire, but sometimes now even all the money
or efforts can stop Nature

we can just can hope for the wind to change direction
and be ready in case of evacuation...

hopefully, things will be back to "normal"
in our city soon
