I’m working at home today as are many others in San Diego since we are experiencing the worst firestorm in its history. Many school buses are being used to move hospital patients. I can’t remember seeing a disaster this bad — on TV they’re saying it may be the worst in California state history. In these situations it’s hard to be positive, but we’ve been through this before and successfully came out of it. I hope local SAIC employees — many of whom did not go to work today, or who left early to check on their homes — and others in our community are doing well.
