Upon reading about the wildfires in San Diego County, my thoughts turned to the location of the 2003 AADB convention, San Diego State University. So far, they're still up and running, although their website currently has this to say:

Campus Alert: San Diego Wildfires

Campus remains open; air quality being monitored.
Oct. 22, 2007 10:43 a.m.

San Diego State University remains open for classes today. Campus health and safety representatives are monitoring the situation -- specifically the air quality inside and outside campus buildings. Those on campus are encouraged to stay indoors and keep doors and windows closed.

SDSU employees and students impacted by road closures and evacuations caused by the current wildfires need not report to work or class today.

Updates will be posted when new information is available on the SDSU Web site at and on the university's Emergency Information Hotline at [edited].

I hope everyone stays well over there. In particular, I hope that people, pets, and irreplacable belongings all get to a safe place until the fires are out.

Freaking wildfires. THIS is why I wouldn't want to live in any of those houses at the top of hills that we saw in California: the access to said houses is restricted because of the hills themselves, and if the road is blocked, no one can get in or out. No thanks. To me, it's just not worth the risk to live in a location like that.
