Thank you for your concern. It means a lot to me. Thought I'd let you know that my parent's home, Lori's condo, Jennifer Johnson Zuffinetti and Amy Johnson Jones' parent's house is ok. The Johnson home was the one that was the most likely to burn, it was in the thick of all of the fires.
It's interesting, I've read a few of the message boards here in Utah, hoping to read words of encouragement and it's interesting to read people thinking that fires happen every year in San Diego and that those that live there were pretty much asking for it.
Since 1979, when my family first moved to San Diego there have been two huge fires that I can remember- in 1996 when it chared my street and we came very close to loosing our house, and just a few years ago. The first of which was started by illegal immigrants living in the canyon behind my house.
If everyone refused to live where there is the potiental for natural disaster where would we live? There are hurricanes in Florida, Tornados in the mid-west, floods in Texas, Drought in Arizona and Nevada, Utah is on a fault line, so where should we all move?
Luckily, I only run into these morons on messages boards, and not in real life. My neighbors and friends are logical and thoughtful, and kind. Thank you for all of your prayers and concern. I well up with tears when I hear that other states are sending fire fighters, redcross workers and financial aid to San Diego.
