Default To sidstakes: Thanks!

Siddhartha,

Thanks! I much appreciate your spirited defense of my post. I also understand why the post can be considered so lame or even callus by some.

Yes, I wish I were there and helping out as some undoubtedly are doing. But as it happens I am in Houston Texas at a meeting, flying to Los Angeles only later today. I will not be able to approach San Diego until at least Thursday. My wife is safe with the dog in a friend's house at a safer neighborhood, with three other families who have also been evacuated.

Our son is in Irvine, also close to another fire, but he is safe because he is in the university, where they would undoubtedly take care of their students.

Our daughter, like me, is far away, feeling as useless and worried.

Hope the fire will be soon under control, but things will get worse before that given the weather report. Our house is directly downwind of the fire, still some 2-3 miles away, but I shudder to think how many more houses will be gutted before it reaches our house.

Regards,

Animesh

Its saddening to learn about all this Animesh, kinda choking....I sincerely hope and wish you and your family and all those affected by this calamity recover promptly.

Be strong.

Warmly,

You know, Animesh, this is where Trekearth feels like a real community (some people apart...;D )

Yesterday I woke up with the radio news saying that SouthWest California was burning, I immediately wondered who in TrekEarth was in South Cal and instantly reminded that you were living in SD.

Of course this won't help... just hope this'll be ok and that your home will be preserved from the fire, more important is that your family is safe anyway.

i respect for ur honest and bold critiques no matter what a lot of others have to say about your choice of words. but u cant be judgemental that some in this community dont really feel or treat this site as a community!!
and i think we are not supposed to comment on the situation but criticise the picture +vly or -vly. and that is what i think i did with whatever knowledge that i have. Some may differ. Rather should have a counter point. I find that healthy. but this forum seemed to be going somewhere else!!

Animesh

I am in Gran canaria for the past 6-7 days (came for a conference, NOT for travelling) and can hardly spend a minute on TE. However I wanted to stop by and wish you and your family the best. Good luck.
