    We heard about this on The Weather Channel because they had to be rescued. Glad this wasn’t you!

    VERY glad you were able to avoid that. But beyond that, may I nitpick? I’m assuming you copy/pasted the caption below the photo, and that it’s an actual newpaper article. Two typos in the first two sentences? Really? Sheesh

    • Alan says:

      Yes, absolutely I just copied/pasted from a newspaper article. I wouldn’t make those errors.

      We’re leaving early tomorrow AM, hope the destruction north of us doesn’t interfere.

    Glad you and LA are safe. Bet you are anxious to get on with it!
