250,000 Evacuated in San Diego

Since San Diego is my hometown, I have been following these fires with increasing alarm. Looks like a few of my aunts, uncles and friends are under a mandatory evacuation alert. An evacuation of this size is unprecedented for San Diego. In fact, they've opened up Qualcomm Stadium as a shelter (another first). So far (luckily), my Mom and siblings have not been directly affected (they're closer to the coast).

I should be getting a few pictures from family shortly, once they're out of harm's way (the picture to the left is from the San Diego Union-Tribune). Once I do. I'll post them here. In the meantime, please keep the folks in San Diego, and indeed, the rest of Southern California, in your prayers.
