San Diego

If anybody's curious, when I left the massive fires hitting Southern California either hadn't started yet, or weren't big enough that there was any sign of smoke or anything. I didn't hear anything until I was back for a day or so at least. I have family down there but I believe nobody's been directly affected - Mom's been evacuated before but so far so good this time. Last I heard she was close enough to one of the fires that they were taking donations of water and sunscreen and snacks for the firefighters, but far enough away that there's no talk of evacuation.

My sympathies to all who aren't so lucky, especially the troops down there who frankly have plenty on their plate already.

Why the picture? OK, this is a bit convoluted. I always associate flamingos with San Diego because they're the first thing you see when you enter the zoo (and there's also some at Sea World). But I actually took this shot in the Galapagos Islands - they're wild flamingos. I used this one because I had it handy, basically.
