San Diego is on fire - literally

It is a scary day to live down here in San Diego. There are 8 fires burning and they are raging out of control due to the Santa Ana winds. Over 265,000 people have been evacuted and homes are burning to the ground. They say it is worse than the Cedar fires from 4 years ago. School was cancelled half way through today and is cancelled for tomorrow and most likely the remainder of the week. While Chad does like the unexpected break he hates the reason for it. His great aunt and uncle were evacuated last night and are not sure their home is still standing. This is predicted to be the worst fire in California's history. It is just so sad to see the images of countless homes burning to the ground. Pray for these people. As for now, we are safe just cooped up due to the large amounts of smoke and ash in the air. Tyler is a little stir crazy as this is the second day we haven't been outside but we are lucky that this is the worst of our scenarios. Here are some pictures.
