This one hit a little too close to home

Yesterday, a good chunk of my hometown burned down. My parents and their house are currently safe (at least when I wrote this in the evening of 10/9) but many of my friends lost their current and/or childhood homes.

It was so hard to work yesterday. My heart and my mind were back in California, and I felt helpless two states away. I was constantly reloading the local news site, checking Twitter and Facebook for updates, and texting my sister and my childhood friends. My heart is broken, you guys.

Also I have a vicious cold that keeps pretending like it’s going away and then coming back with a vengeance.

So that’s all for today, folks. Back to photos next week.
