Hey all,

I've been pretty quiet as of late due to the fires. Fortunately all the family is safe. John and Mike are out fighting the fires and last we heard, they are doing well. This is exactly what they have been training for and we are all so proud of them.

For those who are out of town and don't have quite the news coverage, if you are interested in following the progress of the fire, I suggest you check the San Diego County Emergency homepage at:


They have all the latest evacuations.

Here's a map of the fire as of 5:30 AM. I put our families homes on there so you can kinda see where things are. It's hardly accurate (compared to the 12:30 AM map it moved A LOT in 5 short hours so you can imagine how much it's moved in 4 more) but it will give you an idea of where things are. Click here for the photo.

We'd really appreciate all your prayers, especially for John and Lindsey who are closest. What a way to start a brand new marriage huh? ; )

Not a moment goes by that John, Mike and cousin Steve are in my thoughts and prayers, along with all of you. I can only remember what it was like in 72 whith the big fires and how I felt then as kid. Stay safe and us posted.
Love to all Lisa
