Yesterday was just nuts!!!!  It was like the whole freaking county was on fire.  So sad.  It got me thinking about during the fires in 2007 when we lived in Escondido.  We had just moved into a brand new home.  But this was when the real estate market was turning to crap so the home development we moved into only had 3 other families that had moved in when the fires started.  So it is 3 homes, surrounded by empty lots.  The development was so new that they had street lights up but they hadn't been turned on by the city yet.  It was a really creepy feeling with the orange smoke everywhere, feeling a bit isolated and then the sun goes down and you see the flames coming over the hill in the distance.  Not cool!!!!!
