    In a situation like this, money and fame mean nothing.
    I read a couple hours ago that the Chargers canceled practices due to 3/4 of the team having to evacuate their homes.

    Be safe, guys.
    It's a blacked-out blur but I'm pretty sure it ruled.

    I have a friend, single mom of a 2 y.o. and 4 golden retrievers that were evacuated at 2:00 am Monday morning. The cops gave them 2 minute to get out and as of right now, she has no idea what's going on with her home...San Diego County is a mess.

    My other friends just purchased a home in action and with the wind, the blades of a 50 y.o. windmill broke and was flying around. They were also close to the fire but it turned the other way.

    These are very small numbers of what has to be one the state's largest emergency situations. I will be waiting for the Federal Govertments response as to what they will give us to rebuild and take care of those in need. Bush as never been our friend.

    On Sunday, I went to West LA to visit my family, and from about 6 miles inland we could see a large cloud of brown smoke blowing south but JUST over the coast, not coming inland, it looked pretty bizarre.

    A few mins ago, the sunlight turned more orange, that generally means the air is filling heavily with smoke & ash, since the sun's to the south I'm guessing that is from the San Diego fires which look MUCH worse than ours here in the LA area - half a million evacuees is shocking to hear.

    There's no fire in the Pasadena area that I know of, there's fires in Malibu and a couple north of the valley. If you know diff, please LMK, I head east a lot.

    What's especially frightening and concerning about the SD fires is that a few whole cities have been ordered to evacuate. Hearing that Fallbrook and Ramona were totally evacuated is more than a little sobering.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    I talked to my buddy who is stationed at Pendleton and he mentioned how they were told not to come into work today and to plan on being evacuated as they were one of the few remaining areas that had people. He said he has no idea where they would go as there are fires all around them and he jokingly said they'd just ship them out to sea.

    take care, you kids!

    No smoke from the east yet. I just got back from running some errands and the wind has shifted, bringing the Malibu smoke over the Valley. Can really smell it now too.

    I still can't see any smoke from Arrowhead, despite being relatively close. Maybe it's because this damned wind is blowing it away?

    Speaking of wind, I was able to survey the yard a little while ago. (Meaning look more closely, not actually do precise measurements and such. ) I couldn't tell from inside, but it's like it snowed about two inches, only it's dirt. I'm not comparing this to losing my house in the fires, but it's still going to be an inconvenience.

    I thought that was the smoke from the north.
