Recently the Husband and I watched Battle: Los Angeles. We enjoyed it very much, not only for the shrieky aliens and exploding gas stations, but because Aaron Eckhart went to the same high school as our kids. Go Cougars.
But we didn’t know that the destruction depicted in the movie is about to become horrifyingly real.
Dear merciful God. Our youngest son has to travel from Santa Barbara to LAX on July 16th. And the 405 Freeway will be closed.

And our kid has a flight to catch. This could be a fight to the finish. His grandmother may have to arm him for the dash to the airport, possibly with a bike chain and a trident.
