We’ve been watching the developments in Southern California with great concern. Jessie and I (and a 3 month old Ian) were living in North San Diego county during the Cedar Fire back in 2003 and can remember vividly packing our belongings to make a quick evacuation. I had even removed and packed the hard drives from my computers.
Luckily the evacuation order never came and the fire bypassed us, but we know how scary the situation can be. The experience definitely influenced our decision to move back to Illinois (we lived in a very dangerous “high fire danger” area with only one road leading in and out).
Any of you in the SoCal reading this, know that you are in our thoughts. Stay Safe!
