Here's hoping everyone else is coming through ok. I personally live in Escondido, and had to sleep with one eye open, to see if we needed to evacuate. Luckily enough, we're having our house rewired, so all of our furniture and personal effects are in storage and insured. Meanwhile, I'm writing this utilizing some cat 5 that I ran out to the RV we had rented for the duration of the rewiring job. In any case, had the fires moved further west from their position and affected any of the houses on the east side of us, I would have been forced to leave two opels to burn up. Anyhow, I hope that any of those affected by the fires remain safe, and haven't suffered any losses. Take care!

Yeah, I hope the others here are O.K. too. In Imperial Beach all we have to contend with is the massive amount of smoke and falling ash. Kinda hard to work on the GT with all this junk covering everything, plus it's a little hard to breathe. Our hope and prayers that the rest of the Opel folks are getting through this without mishap.

Ca Opelers

We on the East Coast have been watching the devistation that is going on out there with you on the West Coast. We have friends in San Diego (non opelers), that called us 4 Am EST and said they were being evacuated. Haven't heard from them since. Know that our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Jarrell, we just got the news that over 850 homes are gone and the number is climbing. The areas hit the hardest are, Scripps Ranch, Valley Center, and the Crest area. Hope your friends are not in those communities. To give you and idea of the magnitude of the fire line, I'm a mile from the ocean and two miles from the border and the fire is between 40 miles at the farthest and 8 miles at the closest to me. And this line is not straight but curves around through the canyons and valleys. Some folks have been let back into parts of the communities they were evacuated from, others still have to wait until the area is free of hot spots and still burning areas that can flare up again. All an all it's still a mess and still burning with no relief in sight in the next couple of days.

hope you avoided any fire problems

It is hard to think that the fires were just a month ago, seems longer.

I hope you and your family are safe.

Our Opel shop ( Temecula ) and home in Fallbrook were safe this time.

If you care to attend any San Diego Opel Club events this coming year ( 2004 ) we would love to meet you and your Opels.

We are having a " SWAP parts meet " meet in Encinitas the 1st weekend of Feb. ( Sat.)

A fun run to Julian date to be announced

The Fallbrook Vintage car show in May

The OMC picnic in August

And the Speed Festival Oct 11th 12th on Coronado.

Hope you can make one or two events to be a member of the SDOMC you show up with your car, no yearly dues or fees.
We have many people in our club and we would love to have more
Happy Opelers.
