My beloved Saddle Peak has been spared the big burn so far. Here are two views of it taken from my childhood home about 36 years ago (wow, was it really that long ago????) The evacuation for that area is still mandatory, and it is hard to get news of the fires' progress due to the severity of all of the other fires in San Diego.
Today, the beautiful live oaks have grown up so tall that they obscure the view of the mountain.
Yes Ariel - the green oaks are still there in living color :)
I am keeping all the folks who have lost their entire homes or businesss in my thoughts a prayers. Those who have had to evacuate: maybe a certain curmudgeon & and his dogs, and perhaps a few gals from San Diego - take good care while out of your home, and may it be there when you return safe and sound.
