update

Goodmorning... its Tuesday and my friend's daughter is still here... because she is 12 she can not fly on anything but a direct flight back home... nothing is a direct flight back east from Palm Springs... you have lay overs in Vegas or Pheonix or LA...

There is another friend of the family who is suppose to pick her up [so she can fly out of San Diego] but the fires are preventing them from getting here because the 15 freeway is closed and to top that all off... they are having voluntary evacuations where they live...

I have been telling all of you how dry it has been here... how brown it is everywhere... this place has been a fire waiting to happen for a year now...

The weird thing is... everything is so calm here... you'd never know fires are raging everywhere else! We have had NO wind... No Santa Anas... last week it was blowing like crazy here... toppled over one of my tall cactus' in the backyard!

Anyway... I need to jump in the shower... hope your having a good day...
