The leading edge the fires to the south are now about 10 miles (as the crow flies) from my home. They'd have to burn through 1000's of homes to reach us or snake up the freeway to get to us, but I'm still feeling the stress. Our friends who managed to be one of the few homes left standing on their street in the 2003 Cedar Fire are in an area that is requiring evacuations so they are likely in a shelter or at someone's home. I don't know how to find out.
I just wish there was something more I could do.
