Just a quick set of thoughts for friends in Southern CA - my friend Pat in Escondido, Jane in the Hollywood Hills, employees of my San Diego client. Hope everyone is OK. Scary stuff.
I'm not a huge fan of California - it's a desert and wild country that we've bent to our will with irrigation and earthquake resistant structures. I always darkly joke that the paradise of San Diego will revert to form the day we turn off the water. But for all that, there are millions of people living in fear right now, and 100's of thousands wondering if their homes will be there when they return.
