Update this morning. The fires are easing up and the wind has stopped. Some pictures from this morning on the way to work. The end of this disaster is close. I feel so bad for all that have lost to much... It really humbles you and makes you grateful for what you have. Hoping to hear some good news from the San Diego Fiber Folk today about some of the fellow Balboa Park knitters. Wishing you all the best Bobbi Christy and anyone caught up in the fires down there.

This was taken from inside our complex over the buildings and through the trees. No wind for the first time since Friday.

These are taken from the same vantage point as yesterday. You can see Saddle Back mountain through the smoke. Everyone heading to work while so many have lost so much. Life just moves on. That is smoke not clouds just hanging in the sky. The Sun was filtered over the last few days almost like you had those yellow shooting glasses on. I'm not a gun owner but I have worn the glasses at one point in my life for some reason and it was a similar experience but less bright.

    My heart goes out to everyone affected by this horror. I'm glad to know that you and Mrs. Twisted are ok.

  2. I hate the yellow tint all over everything today. It's like permanent sunset.

    hi there I am a fellow knitter from San Diego. I'm a short time reader and first time poster.
    Thank you for sharing your pictures. The fires in San Diego, at least in my part of town, which is about 5 minutes from the border/Otay Mesa, the scare is pretty much over. It was touch and go for some of my friends living near Otay LaKes and Proctor Valley. The neighboring community had a voluntary evacuation then it turned into mandatory. Today almost everyone is back in their homes and none were lost. Unlike some people northeast from me,like Ramona. My friend Cathy lives in Ramona. Her home survived the last fire, but not sure about this time around. I can't get a hold of her, so I just pray.
    I hope you safe with your family Twistedknitster.
