As I slept, the fire has shifted and my workplace as far as I know is okay. I hope Angela will be allowed back soon to check on her home abode. Now the fire is creeping into Diamond Bar, so I woke up to wondering if my sister is going to be safe. She’s just outside the red zone on the map which is mandatory evacuation. My mom says my sister can see the mountains burning. She’s packing up right now and will be heading to my folks with my niece and nephew as soon as she is told she has to leave.
Yet again Southern California is up in smoke and fire thanks to the Santa Ana winds. I woke up this morning to find out that a fire started up in Anaheim/Corona. It’s something I’ve gotten used to. I’ve worked in Anaheim Hills for 3 1/2 years now and every year, there is some kind of fire that will occur. This is the worst I’ve seen. They’ve completely shut down the freeway and as I am watching the news now, they are showing smoke from the freeway just an exit away from my work. I checked with my co-worker at 1:30 earlier today who supervises our weekend support staff and he texted me to let me know that they were told to evacuate and that the office will be closed until further notice from our boss. Will I have something to return to come Monday morning?
On top of that, I have friends, co-workers, and relatives that live in the area. I hope that everyone is safe.
Update: The riverbed by the Honda dealership that is ohhh, 3-4 blocks away from my work is on fire. My friend Angela lives near the dealership. I know she was able to evacuate and I hope that they are able to keep the fire away from her home!
I live 20-30 miles away and found a photo online of the fire from where we are…
My luck the day I wanted to blog, my host had server issues for 10 hours. 10 HOURS!!! So time to move the rest of my stuff to Godaddy. Hopefully I can get that done today before things get hosed again. I’ve got a few real posts in the works. Until then…enjoy this crazy cat
