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.
