San Diego Fires
My heart is heavy.
I feel helpless.
San Diego is my hometown.
We moved there in 1972 when I was 11 years old.
Leucadia, Del Mar, Solana Beach, Tierrasanta, Santee, and Vista.
I lived in each of these towns until we moved to Nebraska in 1992.
I recognize the street names as they're mentioned on CNN.
I'm watching live broadcasts online from Channel 10.
The entire county is in danger of burning to the ground.
Family and friends are evacuating.
I can't bear to watch, but I can't turn away.
My heart is breaking.
