day 228: As my family waited out news of the situation down in San Diego and were “evacuated” to Orange County, they actually moved to a location with a more vivid view of what was going on. Ben and I drove down to meet them for dinner and I was shocked to see how close the fires appeared. While the fires you can see in this photo are quite far away and didn’t pose any real threat to where they were staying, it was quite a reminder of what is going on all around southern California this week. My thoughts are with those who are still evacuated and to those who have lost their homes. Hopefully this will all end soon!
