2 days/nights ago:
UCLA is on the edge of the Skirball fire [edit: we were only on the edge of the evacuation zone]. This whole day we've been told we're ok and the last Bruin Alert said that class is resuming normally tomorrow. But tonight the Santa Ana winds are blowing hard and my roommates have their things packed and ready to go for evacuation.
My digital media project doesn't seem as important as it did this morning.
