So after another day of delayed and missed flights I arrived in LAX to tons of messages from friends asking if I was ok and I was like yea dude what happened and they told me about this gnarly fire happening and so instead of waiting out my flight I got a car to bring me up to SB and it's insane.
The fire is all around my house. If you are listening on the news you will hear streets like Las Alturas which is the street that my house is on and Sycamore Canyon. I took this picture from downtown to show you how the smoke has just engulfed my house.
I actually haven't even been able to go up there but Deyl and Allie grabbed all the important stuff which was about a two handfuls of stuff. I really don't have that much stuff so that's good and I talked to my friend and insurance guy Josh and he was actually up at the house guarding it and had already assigned a team to come and put fire retardent stuff all over my house so that is pretty cool.
I was really hungry so I went to McDonalds and Rob Lowe was there. It was like the only place open to eat b/c all the power is out.
Westmont is really jacked. A ton of buildings burned and I guess all the students are in the Gym which is a safe place but please keep everyone in your prayers. Some people are already injured and there are a lot of elderly that live on the Riviera and possibly can't get out as quickly.
800+ Acres burned
4 burn victims
