    Let's please put our differences aside for a moment and let us pray for Nate, Joey and the rest of the Unique lighting staff. I saw on the National news tonight that things are pretty bad down in San Diego with the wild fires. Many are without electricity , some have been evacuated and some are homeless as they have loss their home to fire. I noticed Joey hasn't been on today. Let's pray that everything is alright and that they come out of this safe and sound.
    Thank you
    Sincerely

    I think this is something we can all agree on. My thoughts and prayers also go out to everyone who may be affected by the recent events out in CA.

    Copied this from another message board

    Recent press conference on TV put it at 50 homes burned in Escondido yesterday, but fire is still burning on southwestern part of city, over 1300 homes burned in county, over 400,000 acres burned in county, and over 520,000 people evacuated in county. That is about 100,000 more people than were evacuated in New Orleans during Katrina.

    I'll agree. I have a cousin at S.D. State who was evacuated yesterday.
    I hope all is well with Joey, his family, coworkers, and all.

    I wouldn't wish a fire on my worst enemy.

    Having been through a house fire, watching most of it go up in smoke, the dislocation, the daunting cleanup and reconstruction that followed.... it's almost 5 years ago now. Believe me when I say I feel their pain.

    I'm not comforted by the smell of a wood fire anymore either. It still makes me a little anxious.

    My prayers as well. I was supposed to go to San Diego yesterday to see Joey and Nate but that was canceled. Joey was indeed evacuated yesterday, I'll try to reach him today to check on him and Nate.

    Watching the news coverage of the fires in S. California while sitting here in drenching rains is quite uncomfortable. I wish there was something we could do to shift the weather patterns around.

    Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of our friends who are affected by this terrible firestorm.

    Yes, I'm really getting worried about them since I haven't seen him on here. Hope they are all safe. Hopefully we will get some good news soon.

    BTW, FX Lighting's HQ is pretty close to the fires too. Also Hunter Industries, for those of you who might also install sprinklers. Keep them all in your thoughts and prayers.
