About a year ago, my family and I moved away from the San Diego area to settle back in the Midwest. The currently raging wildfires have hit close to home as we have many friends and co-workers that have been affected by the massive evacuations. Our thoughts are with everyone out there suffering through this tragic situation.

The San Diego Union-Tribune is using Blogger to distribute up-to-the-minute information about the wildfires. If you are in the San Diego area or are concerned about people there, check out the Wildfires 2007 blog for the most current information.
