Made It Through the Night
No evacuation last night. Here's a map of our area.The NW corner of the map is the SE corner of TierraSanta. It's been completely evacuated. The star is set to the intersection of Mission Gorge and Jackson. Everything from that corner along Jackson Drive and east has been evacuated. Also, the strip along Mission Gorge Rd from Princess View east to Jackson has been evacuated. We live west of Princess View behind Allied Gardens Park. One thing this map does not show is the topography which is rather rough here.
We watched the fire last night try to work its way down the San Diego River canyon. We saw some flames pop up last night, but as of this morning the fire has not made the curve past the Mission Vista development.
So we're ok for right now, and should be in the future. Just in case you care, we live in a development with very little of the urban/wildlife interface that so worries many of the folks who think SoCal deserves all this. There are thousands of people who are in a world of hurt here in SD, in San Bernadino and throughout the West. If you have a few bucks to spare, the Red Cross sure could use it.
