fire.

So Far, So Good.........
I just got back from a quick trip to Kauai [Thanks for the hospitality, Wolfpak!] on Saturday.......... & by Sunday evening we were seeing all the smoke from the East County fires in San Diego. People were calling saying how amazing the waves were & how amazing the sunset was...
The next morning we awoke to a totally bizarre color in the sky & crazy winds...
My smart, practical wife freaked & we decided to pack up the kids, some essentials, & bail... we were'nt in any immediate danger nor being evacuated, but the smoke was so bad we decided to get the kids out anyway & beat the rush.
we tried San Clemente...... still smoked out, & went on to Laguna Beach for the day....
reports looked like we were'nt going to be able to get home any time soon & people really close to where we live were being evacuated so we came up to SF to overwhelm the inlaws.
i grabbed my camera stuff, clothes [hadn't unpacked from Hawaii yet], kiddie's clothes, toys, bikes, & stopped by my office to grab 6 terrabytes worth of images.... surprising what i left behind in retrospect.
Anyway, we're all safe & sound & i'll likely head home on thurs or fri to start cleaning up.
Thanks to all the concerned friends & family that sent texts, calls, & e-mails to see how the Rucker's were.... we appreciate it.

Hanalei, Kauai [....a land called Honalee]
