October 2007

It was one year ago this week that San Diego was under siege from the Witch Creek and Harris fires, respectively.

It was a bizarre week full of angst, terror and uncertainty, but also of caring, compassion and hope.

A little retrospective is in order this evening as we look back on some generosity of spirit and some some-what misguided but fun-filled BwD relief efforts here and here.

This is also the 5 year anniversary of the Cedar Fire -- the one that I drove straight through on I-8 with towering flames on the sides of the freeway coming back from the desert. I was messing around the other night and came across this completely surreal scene...
