Aw no
Talked to grandma. She hasn't evacuated. She's been asked to but she's too old/weak to stay at Qualcomm stadium. My uncle is with her but theres a lot of people on her street that have stayed. The thing they're not mentioning about Rancho Bernardo is that the general population is elderly folks. It started as a retirement community before some younger families started moving in, so most of the people in RB are old folks who are barely mobile.

Here's a map of the area. Check the bottom of the witch fire (the larger fire by ramona), near the 15. My grandma is on Caminito De Las Missiones.

*wrings hands*

I don't know how our friends are in Lake Arrowhead. I almost moved there last weekend but I didn't because the place I was renting, they needed to fix the front steps first. Thank god I didn't move yet.

*edit* Everyone say your prayers for smokepaw, he's been sent to fight the Malibu fire from NorCal. He called me last night from Malibu. I know we can use all the help we can get.

D: I hope she'll be alright. I don't know how the fire is over there anymore, the news hasn't mentioned it lately, but I know they're having trouble evacuating a lot of the elderly near the burn areas. :C

Right where the burn area is is the Remmington old folks home. Lots of immobile elderly people who need a lot of special care there. Not to mention right on Bernardo Center Drive, thats where the Rancho Bernardo fire station is. Those firefighters very well might lose their station within the next couple hours.

My brother just flew back into San Diego from Germany. Luckily he lives pretty far west but it's hard not to worry about everyone else, especially the fire fighters.

I hope those folks (including your granny) are okay. They've already had to evacuate so much of the SD area that there's no place left to go.

Kat and Stego are alright, having evacuated early on. If Smokepaw was in Malibu last night, he's probably been moved from there by now as that fire is considered lower priority. If he's still in town, I'd buy him a drink. Hell, he can have the bottle.

You know, on Friday night, he was talking about how he was expecting to be stood down for an early end of the fire season...

Yes I know. He was fired and rehired pretty much overnight.

Indeed

I'll pray for your friend Smokepaw and your Grandma...and all those folks in her community who are unable to flee :(
And all the firefighters.
