Whether you like it or not, SoCal is a part of us. So, this one is going out to our lower half: stay safe, San Diego and SoCal.
Fueled by disgusting, freakishly warm Santa Ana winds, coastal and inland areas are on fire. La Gov declared a state of emergency last night for San Diego and seven surrounding counties. Work and school has been canceled; people evacuated. Ugh.
In a rare state of concern, we rushed to call our Hillcrest-based sister in San Diego. "Oh yeah, it sucks. But now I have work off today, so I might go to the beach," she reported back to us. (God, sometimes we fucking love you, SoCal folk!) It's nice to know that they're keeping their chins up, tanned.
