    I went to Palomar College in San Marcos Calif and lived in Escondido. It seems like the place is not the same anymore. My mom and my sister had to evacuate when ashes started falling on their house near Carlsburg. Her daughter owns several houses and they all went together to one of them and it was close to the flames too.

    They had just gotten out in time, about 15 minutes after they left, Interstate 15 where they had just been driving, was closed by the cops.

    They finally found shelter at my nephew's house, Jason.

    I hope Palomar College doesn't burn down, a lot of memories there. I took piano lessons from Howard Brubeck, Dave Brubecks brother there. Man, this sucks.

    We have a good friend who has a house in Carlsbad (not burg). She was returning from a trip and while she was gone her neighborhood was evacuated and then the order was lifted but most of her cul-de-sac neighbors are staying away out of fear.

    This is going to be a bad summer.

    I'm in hopes that your loved ones will be safe and all this will go away soon. There is too much hardship these days to have such tragity. (like ther's ever a good time) but you know what I mean. You have my simpathy and support sonhouse.

    I heard a bit about at least one arsonist but I don't think all of this is arson, too many going on since it is dry as tinder now, no rain for months and such.

    Anything could set one off, a broken beer bottle making like a lens, a lightning strike, as well as bad campers.

    Thanks. Mom and Sis back home, they were allowed to go back since the flames moved on from near their place. They didn't get hit with much more that ashes floating down in their yard. Which is scary enough as it is.
