Wildfires

October 9, 2008 at 6:38 am 2 comments

So all evening I’ve been complaining to my husband that my breathing is labored, thinking the baby is just getting bigger and sitting on whatever that vein is that babies in utero sit on that makes us pregnant women get short of breath and dizzy.  Then I just learned the real reason.  A wildfire, caused by the hot, windy Santa Ana conditions of today, has broken out a few miles up the road.  It has burned 1,000 acres already.  My asthma warns me before I see the news article, before I look out my window to see that the moon is a beautiful, haunting half-white and half smoky red-orange.  Not again, we all think in San Diego.  Please, not again.  We fled last year.  We are more prepared this year, right?  Or are we?  We know what is important at least.  And we know we don’t want raging wildfires again.

All good thoughts, vibes, prayers appreciated that this fire gets contained quickly and more do not begin….

Update: The weather turned in North San Diego’s favor today (Thurs), from scorching yesterday to a chilly fall day today, and the amazing firefighters were able to contain the 1,500 acre blaze by late this afternoon.  Air quality is still not great, but we are so grateful, and still hoping this is the worst of it this year.  If you’d like to see the crazy photos of the fire, here is the latest.  Thanks for all good thoughts!  A Having Enough day for sure…

    I don’t feel more prepared, I feel more… scattered. But that’s probably just me.

    I hope you’re back to easy breathing very soon. 🙂
