Fire

It's jumped the freeways and gone into Rancho Bernardo and Poway. These are places were a lot of teachers live--the "starter home" place" Rancho Penasquitos. The older houses, the older people, those whose planned to escape to the suburbs.

Yet another reason to live in the city.

Qualcomm Stadium is open now as an evacuation center.

That is where I will be taking clothes and everything we do not need that someone else might.

"This home is a complete loss."

Of necessity I am going to take photographs of Balboa Park now--I need a few because it's mentioned throughout the calendar as a location of perspective.

San Diego is burning again.

TPHS is closed.

Mo's will be open. Last time, they got masks and stayed open and people drank through the masks that they wore and the straw that broke through the mask that covered their drinks.

Thank God I don't work until Wednesday night.

The mayor has asked all non-essential workers to stay home today so that the freeways are not overloaded with anyone but people fleeing the places they once fled to.

I'm going to take photographs and walk dogs and finish editing the calendar.
