And Now, It's Earthquake Season

FIRST THE FIRES, now this. I'm just feeling very thankful that - to the best of my knowledge - everyone I know out in Southern California is all right.

I haven't heard yet from two people I know near Los Angeles, but as there haven't been any reports of real trouble in that part of the state, I am confident that all is well there. However, I did hear from a former colleague of mine who works in San Luis Obispo. He and his family are unhurt. Their house swayed and shook -- it was quite a quake -- but it is still standing and apparently undamaged.

So thank God for that. And Tony -- if by chance you're reading this -- stay safe out there, and best of luck over the next few days.
