Watching the fires burn in San Diego made me think of my many friends and colleagues who live in the San Diego area. I flew through Los Angeles yesterday and the smoky skies are amazing – here is how it looked outside the airplane in LAX.
I sat next to a lady on the plane who said her grandchildren who live in Long Beach were not allowed out doors and that soot is spreading throughout the area. Now, Long Beach and Los Angeles are about 200 miles north of San Diego and where the fires are!
On the news this morning, I heard Christie Williams interviewed, who talked about seeing her house burn on TV. Then, I read about Christie and her family on her blog. I encourage you to share your thoughts and prayers with her as well.
