thank you for sharing the updates on those areas lionlady.

I sincerely feel for those that were devastated in losing their homes, lives, family members or pets, but.... as bad as it has been, it definitely could have been much worse without all the help in fighting the fires and helping the people.

time for me to get in gear to go run some errands... hope all of you get to see some more critters out roaming in the night. Saw a few Zebra a little while ago.

Talk to y'all later on.

It's really neat to be able to swap neighborhood type stories with people you meet from all over the world in here. Smiling I have wondered about some of the places where I used to live and unfortunately we lost contact with the friends we made there many years ago. I haven't seen the News lately, what is the status of the Wildfires?

The Witch Fire (Ramona, Julian, Rancho Bernardo, Rancho Santa Fe, Escondido - including the Wild Animal Park, Torrey Pines and parts of Oceanside), the Harris Fire, from the Campo area east to the outskirts of Chula Vista and northward to Spring Valley, and the Poomacha Fire (around and up Palomar Mountain) the three biggest of the 8-9 fires (yes!) are still burning but have been "contained," which I think means they are not advancing.  At this point, I believe only the Poomacha is endangering structures, including the Palomar Observatory.  Otherwise, most evacuees have been able to return home (500,000 people evacuated!), schools are re-opening slowly.  Air quality is horrendous, but we are trying to get back to something approaching normal.  Firefighters, polic, Red Cross and shelter organizers have been OUTSTANDING.  (The football stadium in Mission Valley held 10,000!)

hi lionlady, soooooooooo glad to hear that every thing worked out ok for you and your family in the wildfires evacuation. I remember all too well how bad they can get out of control. I lived in North Park section of San Diego back in 1978. keeping all the others in my thoughts and prayers.

DEAR KAREN- Thank you! And I lived in North Park in 78 as well - around Monroe and Texas Street. I remember that fire very well - very scary!

WOW... small world isn't it. I lived by the corner of University Avenue and 9th Street. There was a Liquor Store/Delicatesin on 1 corner and a Bar called the Star and Garter catty corner across the street. We moved back to Virginia in October of that year, not long after that plane crash with that DC-9 and the Cessna planes, that weren't too far from us, maybe 8 or 9 blocks or so.

LaughingVery small world - the PSA crash was a little farther from us - we were nearer El Cajon Blvd.  Neither University Ave. nor the North Park/Normal Heights areas have changed very much...
