  2. I live very close to the coast. It is strangely quiet this morning. There is almost no traffic on San Elijo Avenue and Highway 101. The smoke has lifted slightly, so the air is slightly better, and there is no wind.

    Are the weather conditions propelling all the fires finally improving? Will Encinitas escape, even on the eastern edges? I sure hope so. I've lived my whole life in San Diego County, and these events are unprecedented.

    I have been receiving the email updates from Teresa Barth that are being posted on this blog. A big thank you to Teresa and J.P. for their commitment to our community.

    Does anyone know if there will be a council meeting on Wednesday night?
