California Update-Final

After discussions with Darius and Bill from HODR who were in California to scout out possible jobs, we have decided to NOT deploy in response to the fires.

It is not that there is not work we could do, but the decision came down to the fact that our Thanksgiving break is short (we have class on Tuesday), the distance of the trip would force us to fly at a cost of about $400 per person for 4 days (and that assumes we work on Thanksgiving), and jobs are hit and miss with some fires destroying homes in an area while other homes were untouched next door. Coupled with the fact that many of the homes are beyond what we could help with (either totally gone or too fancy for us to be of much assistance), we decided it would be best to stay and be ready to help in places closer to here.

Here is the HODR update from Bill.
