North County Times Inland Edition 10/24/2007

This is the front page of today’s North County Times (click for full-size version). San Diego County is ablaze with one of California’s worst wildfires--with 2000+ homes destroyed, and more than 1/4 million residents evacuated.

I live just outside of the evacuated areas in Oceanside. Never-the-less the ash and smoke are everywhere.

On Monday we had to evacuate the main NCT building.

Another idea for a photo book: disaster and the McLaughlins; how we seem to be drawn to each other.

First section would be the Mt. St. Helen's pictures you have, then the Katrina, then the CA wildfires.

You really should be printing your photos for your friends to see, and for posterity ;)
