I’m anxiously flipping through television channels and hoping that the fires burning through San Diego County die down soon. It’s a repeat of the 2003 fires.
Reports are predicting another day of harsh Santa Ana conditions and I’m just preparing for the worst. (I already have important documents in a case ready to go at a moment’s notice.)
Fortunately for me, living in central San Diego is quite a different thing than living in Rancho Bernardo, where many of the homes have already burned to the ground. There is still a sense of normality with the exception of the ash and soot that has filled the air.
The only thing keeping me grounded? Perusing odd recipe books. Yeah, I have to keep my sense of humor in times like these. So sue me.

OH. I love how 'Satan' is in giganto type.So how did 24 hour comics day go?
Stay fire free, my friend!
hope you get some clean air soon. Interesting recipe!
*patpat*We were pretty close to the Orange County fire for a while, but thankfully it's moved on.
It is so horrifying and tragic. i feel like we're living in Hell, and i don't even believe in a "hell," per se.Bought and brought a bunch of items over to Qualcomm Stadium yesterday, mostly for people's pets, and am making cookies tomorrow for two of the SD Fire Departments that are near where i live… i can't get rid of the feeling like i have to DO SOMETHING. ANYthing… it's not quite "survivor's guilt," but it's something close to it.It's so incredibly horrifying…
I feel for everyone in San Diego right now (and in all of the fires). I take it you were not evacuated? It's almost over now!
nice blog this one of yours.
