Those Cali Wildfires are Serious!


I was just asked by the Red Cross if I would be available to deploy out there for three weeks. If they’re taking disaster responders from the East Coast, then they are really hurting.

Even though the fires are sweeping through the counties north of San Diego where I grew up, I have to decline the invitation to respond this time around. New babies (and A.D. deadlines) do that to a man.

It’s someone else’s turn this time.

    1. Yes. I feel like this is another round in the eternal battle of humankind vs. nature. As with the Asian tsunami and Hurricane Katrina, nature wins again.
