Firestorm 2007

It has been a rough week in Southern California - we aren't in the fire area, but we sure have experienced the smoke all week. The pictures above show what our sunrise looks like each morning and the sunsets are just as amazing. All the sports programs, any outdoor practices and recess has been cancelled all week in our area.
Our teenagers were supposed to be at a major band competition this weekend in San Diego, but because of the fires and smoke the competition was cancelled. Also, 2 of the bands that they compete against are right in the middle of the fires (Rancho Bernardo and Poway) so we're sure that many of the band kids most likely lost homes. Thankfully the heat and winds have died down and the fires are almost contained.
