Nevins Building, Hemet
So here are my options: I can stay here, raiding grocery stores and avoiding zombies until the army comes, if they come; or I can make a break for the apparent quarantine line, about 50 miles from here. I could probably find a car with gas still in it and I should be able to get around all the debris. But what would happen once I got to the line, if it's even still there? For all I know it's long gone and I'm the last human left in the whole of Southern California. I don't know what to do.
I climbed on the roof today to see if I could see anything through the smoke. Nothing. The smoke is so thick that I'm not even sure if the mountains have caught on fire yet. I don't see any flames so I think they're still ok, but who the hell knows?
Barely saw any zombies today. There were a few on the street below, wandering around. I don't think they saw me.
